Red-tailed hawk portrait

This is a picture of a red-tailed hawk that I took at Croton Point Park in December 2017. I find that the hawks there are very unfazed by humans and will frequently sit unmoving atop a pole on the landfill hill while you get closer and closer. I was very proud when this picture was selected to be part of the Carnivore exhibit at the Rockefeller Art Gallery in Fall 2018. I had to get it matted and framed to museum quality standards, which was quite expensive, but then I sold it at a profit, so I was quite happy.
