    Wow GZ, this turned out fantastic–you nailed it! Everything here depicts the Red Tailed Hawk perfectly as did your Fresh Pick. Love the silver hawk connector you added with the feather hanging from it. Nice way to remember & honor these splendid creatures who amaze us with their soaring & gliding high on the thermals–awesome to behold for sure.

    Wonderful! Wonderful! Wonderful! We seem to have more eagles than hawks up here, which are not noble but scavengers of the first order.
