This Red-tailed Hawk has its eye on something. White Rock Lake, Dallas, 2006.

Love the way the hawk appears to have just crooked its head as if to say "What's that I see?"

Something definitely just caught its attention. Full alert status.

Yes, and that's what makes it so special for me. I bet for every 100 photos of the same hawk, only a handful of them would capture that additional dimension to pull the viewer into the drama of the moment, rather than being the mere passive observer. The "yank-em-in" factor...
