Hawk at Bentsen State Park

Hello, everyone.

The last time we went to Bentsen for walking, we took the very first turn-off from the paved road and wandered around on some dirt-surfaced trails. (This is the area called the Resaca Viejo trail.) Saw a lot of fallen wood, watched a male javelina run across the trail in front of us, and found, just before reaching an observation deck with a bench, this peek between the trees at a large bird.

The so-smart camera couldn't take this photo, because it will instantly assume that closer objects are the purpose of the picture. Had to put it into manual focus mode to get it to ignore the branches and tree trunks that have been (mostly) cropped out of this shot.
