    Thanks. I was really lucky to get this. I was driving very slowly along a dirt road in Kissimmee Prairie Preserve State Park (they are all dirt roads) looking for life and this hawk was just sitting in the ditch by the side of the road. Just had enough time to stop the car, grab the camera from the seat, point it out the window, manually focus (too much grass in the way) and shoot a couple of shots as he flew more or less parallel to the ground at waist level.
