Red-Tailed Hawk

I have been trying to get a decent photo of this incredibly shy creature since last Spring, and, while I’m not entirely happy with these shots, with Winter closing in these may be as good as I’m going to get this year.  He’s gotten less shy with me as I stumble around the park trying to get shots of him and the other animals, but he has a comfort zone and when I enter it, he flies away.

He’s ever watchful of me while I try to get his picture.

Which prevents him from hunting and brings me to a perplexing morality issue.  I just want to take his photo, and he needs to hunt to survive.  My disturbing him is preventing him from hunting because he’s watching me, so my taking his picture threatens his survival.
