Photo taken at Laguna Seca Ranch in South Texas February 24, 2019.

Nikon D7500, Nikon 300mm f/2.8, 1/2000 sec at f/6.3, ISO 720.

It's not that common to get two Harris's Hawks that close to each other.  They're a mated pair who we saw flying into a group of trees carrying sticks to make a nest.  Hope there's lots of little ones flying around soon.

Very cool to see them both and beautifully posed as well. I hope you get to see the little ones this spring! This is a pretty amazing picture.
