October 13 Red Tailed Hawk

October 13 Red Tailed Hawk, originally uploaded by NedraI.

On my way home I noticed this huge bird sitting above the road with fields surrounding him. Luckily there was a spot for me to pull over and get a shot. It was so large I thought it might be an eagle. When I got home I zoomed in on the picture and went to Google images and typed in hawk and found out indeed it is a red tailed hawk. It is one intimidating bird!
Yesterday I played around with an online photo site called Aviary. The problem was with a free account they put their watermark on your saved picture. Tonight I went to the free Photoshop site. I hadn't been there in a long time. I cropped, brightened and sharpened the image. Not bad for free. Then I was able to drag it to my flickr folder and it put in my photostream.
