Camera Critter #252

During an earlier in the year trip down the trail along the Dry Canyon in Redmond, Oregon, I spotted a nice raptor sitting near the top of a tree just off the trail.

I couldn’t help but stop and begin shooting images of the marvelous Merlin.

How awesome!!! I clicked on the photo to view it larger, and it sure looks like you are getting the evil eye. Maybe the raptor was sizing you up. hehe

What a beautiful photo! I see various Raptors around here but I have never been close enough to distinguish what kinds they are.
