This darkly colored juvenile Red-tailed Hawk can be reliably observed on this tree almost every evening between 6:00 pm and sunset. I stopped by at dusk the day after rain had passed through the area. The lingering clouds combined with the sunset to create some dramatic backdrops.

While I was photographing, the hawk flew from one tree to another and then back again.
