Topside: This guy just posed for me

2013-09-25 - Topside of The Holler, Old Clearsprings Road, Ozark, KY - Photo by Shamarie Claiborne.
This guy posed perfectly for me; got him in one shot.
But really I think he knew I was stopped in the middle of the road and didn't want me to get run over. My dad, Jimmy Harper, says he's a red-tailed hawk and that in Kentucky, there's one for every one square mile. - Shamarie Claiborne Questions for readers: Does anyone elese think the bird is practicing perspectival illusionism - putting a bit of trompe d'oeil in the work above? Are we getting a side view of its head? Or is the bird turned, looking at the photographer? And an ID would be nice. Maybe other inquiring minds would like to know. - CM
