    If i remember correctly, it is a junior red shouldered hawk. This center rescues injured and human imprinted raptors. They try to rehabiltate for the wild. If it is not possible, they keep them for life. Once a year they have a photo day where for $20 you can shoot all morning. Only problem, we were eaten by chiggers. Very uncomfortable for a week. TMI.

    Gorgeous portrait of this bird. Wish I could see a bit more of the hand but that's a minor point. Congrats on a super shot., love the lighting,

    lookig at the tech specs i pleased that flash was not used. with a beak like that it would have gone for the flash. you have picked up the interaction and the feather details very well.

    Beautifully lit, perfectly focused, the background reddish brown banding may not help much. For that reason I would have cropped out the lower green or, more probably given the subject matter, added more of the hand - but I don't know what is just off frame. Technically a very fine capture.
