My girlfriend and I were hiking around a park in CT after a recent snowstorm. As we passed a pavilion we noticed this guy perched in a tree feeding. We slowly approached and got ourselves in a good position to photograph him after he took off. Myself, being not so bright sometimes, decided to wear my low cut hiking boots and regular socks. My feet were freezing standing in the snow, and of course the hawk decided he was just going to hang out for while and pose. After 45 minutes he decided finally to take off. I snapped off a few shots and then went to warm my feet.
