A Survivor --Red Tailed Hawk
In reply to steelhead3, Apr 29, 2013

Sometimes you don't really notice things until you get home and look closer at an image only to have it hit you and say "wow!" I photographed this Red Tailed Hawk today at Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge in Colorado and took quite a few photographs of him. Notice anything unusual? Look close! He only has one leg. I looked through all my other RAW files of him from different angles and sure enough, this is indeed the case. It makes you wonder what he got in a tangle with to cause this or if he was perhaps just born this way. It didn't especially seem to impede him at all though as he looked quite health and very large, one of the larger RTH's I have seen. Such beautiful raptors.....
