A red tailed hawk sits at winter's edge just off the highway's shoulder. It's watching each car as it passes. Somewhere between brevity and caution it allows us a glimpse of it's beauty. It's a fleeting moment between human and hawk. When it's time for him to go I pan my camera in sync with his flight. It's freedom balanced on air as his shadow stalks the snowy field below.
