Backyard Late Autumn Nature in New Jersey: Red-Tailed Hawk

I saw this large bird in the trees way back from the house. I quickly got some shots with a Nikon D3x camera and 600 mm f/4 VR lens. This was my highest resolution long distance setup at the time. The images are 100% crops after being processed with Capture One Pro and Focus Magic.
