A northern goshawk visits

I was heading out to the car yesterday midday when I caught some movement in the spruce trees by the driveway. Sure enough, this lovely northern goshawk had just swooped down and landed in the spruces. As I approached, it took off again and flew to one of the poplars along the brook. I grabbed my camera and rattle off a few shots. Quite a beautiful raptor. Oh, and yes, the chickadees were keeping an eye on him…

 Nikon D600, Sigma 120-400mm lens @ 400mm, ISO 640, f/9, 1/4000″ exposure.
