He was just sitting there!

I've occasionally argued that Cantigny has at least one "tame" Red-tailed Hawk. On this particular day, I was walking past the Hosta garden and he lands on the lamp post just ahead of me. I walked a little closer and got within 15 feet of the post and took this shot (note, this was at 70mm and cropped a little).

 

He just sat there! After I took the picture, he stayed until he was convinced that I was bigger than a squirrel, and departed.

 

This is my kind of bird photography.
