Harris hawk sitting on a black rail

Sometimes I find I’m too tired to go out taking photographs or to go exploring different areas so I look for things closer to home, or even inside my home to photograph.

Occasionally something will come to me, which makes life a lot easier!

I saw this hawk being flown where we live over the residents garden last week and when the handler saw me running around inside and grabbing my camera he walked closer to our flat and got the hawk to land on the railing just outside our window.

I was in a bit of hurry so took a few photos through a closed window and cropped this one down a bit to get rid of the worst of the reflections, although you can still se a bit of our curtain in the top right part of the picture.
