I pretty much always shoot in raw. This hawk is 1 of a pair which has been flying around the same area the past few days. I believe they are setting up a nest somewhere close. With a little bit of luck I'm planning on getting the pair flying together. Which is easier said than done. :lol:

Found this eagle in Colorado Springs to photograph today. The portrait style pic of the eagle has been highly cropped & sharpened in post to show the nictitating membrane over the eye.

Not exactly photos, but on Sunday a friend and I got bluff charged by a mama bear with two cubs northeast of Crawford. We think one of her cubs was injured in the encounter since it began screaming and didn't stop. I took some videos after we'd gotten a safe distance away.

Video of the cub screaming (turn your sound up, better with headphones):


Video of the mama running around angrily:

Prob not hurt. It is a distress call. I've seen cubs do this before and it does always look like there is something seriously wrong. But I don't think so.
