Zenith for a Raptor

This red-tailed hawk soared, dived, then circled our yard before perching
 upon the ZENITH of the tallest pine tree next door. Good thing I had
 a ZOOM lens handy! I hope he wasn't trying to ZAP our cats 
who were enjoying the first sunny day in days!

By the way, we're photographing the Letter Z this week over at ABC Wednesday.

Love the raptors! Lucky you that it swooped in for a visit. And, clever choice for 'Z'.

We have bald eagles that perch up in a tree near us - probably 40ft up!

He looks so stately up there--a king on his throne.

Raptors are fierce looking. And fierce acting. Beautiful to see in flight.

It's always a pleasure to have your camera handy at such moments!
