This beautiful hawk was photographed south of Dunmore, Alberta up in the hills. Whenever in Medicine Hat this is one of my favorite places to visit. 

This hawk is perched on a gatepost, and surprisingly, it didn't take flight right away like they usually do. I was so happy to get several photos both while sitting still and in flight.
