Bill Bryant-Audubon Photography Awards/2021 Video Award Winner

This is an award-winning shot of a red-tailed hawk.

It may look like it’s frozen in time. In fact, it is hovering in a stiff wind as it scans for prey on the ground.

The footage came first in the video category of the 2021 Audubon Photography Awards.
