Five photos of spectacular Harris’s Hawk

Harris's Hawk stands on long legs while perched on a tree branch.

Adult Harris’s Hawks are mostly dark chocolate-brown, with accents of reddish brown, white, and black. Randy Smith took the photo above in November 2014 at the sprawling King Ranch, in Texas. He used a Canon 7d camera, a 300mm f/4 lens, and a 1.4x converter.
