Exercising a hawk

Found the dear

Monday after shooting at St. Mary’s Reservoir for part of the afternoon I came back to the studio to download some images and do some edits.  I had supper and thought it would be fun to head to Helen Schuler Nature Center to photograph some of the deer that hang around there and their velvet antlers. I got to the river bottom and started my search. After about ten minutes I found the deer and started to get into position.  As I was getting set-up I heard a hawk call from a long ways away.  I got a few images of the deer and noticed that the hawk was still calling.
