I love the stare of raptors because they always appear so serious, intense and they have a no-nonsense look to their eyes like this Red-tailed Hawk has. I suppose raptors have to be no-nonsense despite what their eyes look like simply because they are focused on survival. There were times in my life where I had to be that focused too so that I could survive as well so perhaps that is what draws me to the eyes of raptors.
I am going to be on the road not long after this post is published and I hope that I will get a chance to photograph Red-tailed Hawks and more.
