Beauty close at hand

It is not unusual to see hawks in this part of Florida. They are often in pairs, and perch singly, about a half mile apart on the highest point of the highest trees. They call to each other, and their call (more of a shriek really) is by no means a pleasure to the ears.

Call apart, they are so beautiful. The hawk pictured below forsook the high places and spent quite a bit of time on the lamp post just outside my home. My guess is that she/he is a juvenile.
