RED TAILED HAWK – Just being cool

I took these photographs near the Yakima airport on 16th Street this morning.  When I first started taking pictures he appeared to be regal and dignified.  After a few minutes his dignity changed to just plain cute.   It was the hottest day of the year to date, nearing 100 degrees.  I am certain that was not his intention, but when you’re hot, you’re hot.

A few minutes make a lot of difference in appearances.
