Broad Winged Hawk

So I am set-up to take pictures of Snow Geese flying over the edge of a water treatment plant when this Hawk flies about 20 feet from me to sit in the grass not far away. For some unknown reason he did not see me....standing next to my car with the doors wide open to shield me from the the cold and high winds.

 

I watched him on the ground for about 10 minutes to see if he was going to fly up and catch something as the geese flew overhead. He didn't but I did get lots of nice shots of him in the grass and a fly-by shot when he made his return pass by me - again.
