I saw this red-tailed hawk on the side of the road along RR 2222 recently and was able to pull my car into someone’s driveway and roll down the passenger window to take this picture with a medium telephoto lens. I guess he was so intent on finishing his meal that it was more important than fleeing from my advances.
