Red Tail Hawk! My first A to A

Today I flew in gusty wind trying to gather more pictures of our local infestation of yellow scotchbroom. You can see some in the background. During the flight my SS attracted a couple of red tail hawks so I diverted my mission to try and get one on camera. Well, I did, but it is not much to look at; too far away. Next time I will try to close the distance more. Look on the left of the image for it. I had been seeking this for years! fish

Congrats on your first A2A!

You should crop around the bird in full resolution, and post the crop...

Like I said, the wind was whipping my plane all over the sky, as you can clearely see from the hawk fuzziness. That makes for smeared images. Wasen't flying my co-pilot plane as the Tx for it is in the shop. I bet it would make better pictures in wind. fish
