Great capture, could have been better if you had placed yourself
in front of the raptor and got the same shot but from directly in front.

Great shot! I think if you had placed yourself in front of the hawk it wouldn't had flown in your direction.

I was guessing that from the angle and how close you were to the subject that you were at a
raptor show or wildlife centre, if this was the case then these birds are trained to fly to/from a
perch so placing yourself right in the flight path would be a possible position to shoot from.
