This beautiful raptor was spotted not too long after the preceding deer shot. We did have some sunlight this morning, although as can be seen here, it was on the far right side, creating problems maintaining detail in the white head feathers on that left side. Shooting in Raw Format, with careful adjustments in Photoshop, helped quite a bit.
