Young Hawk Watching The River

This young hawk, perched high above the Rappahannock River was carefully watching everything going on below it.

I’ve had trouble identifying this hawk. I believe it’s a juvenile Red-Shouldered Hawk but if anybody knows differently I would appreciate your thoughts.

I love this picture because it’s completely candid and you can see the authentic happiness in the faces of these guys.  Even though you can’t see much of his face, you can tell the man on the right has a big smile.

The damselflies on the Rappahannock River come in a wide variety of colors.  I thought this red one was particularly colorful.

My friends I and were on a multiday canoe trip on the Rappahannock River in July.  One evening we rounded a bend in the river to see massive storm clouds building down river.  Fortunately the storm took an alternate course and we were spared scrambling ashore to wait it out.
