Taking flight!
Hawk that decided I was too close for comfort, even with the telephoto-- Washoe Valley, Nevada. This appears to be a northern goshawk (Accipiter gentilis), which is an unusual occurrence--they're more typically found in aspen groves in the nearby mountains, not down here in the exurb.
