To start with, I’m not a connoisseur of wildlife, but I am curious and love nature and I’m trying to learn something new whenever an opportunity presents itself. During one of our stops in California, I saw two birds gliding smoothly and gracefully above us, and assumed they were hawks. While I was looking up some facts about hawks, I found out they could potentially be red-tail hawks, and these two I saw were probably mating (they were performing some kind of dance high in the sky and it was mid April). I wish I had a longer lens, but at the same time I kind of like the scale of the elements in these three images. The images were made with my Fujifilm xT1 and the xf 56mm, 1.2 lens.
