It always amazes me how well wildlife can hide in plain sight and how little the average people really notices in nature. For example, this hawk was sitting just off the side of a very popular nature trail. People walking by constantly, but nobody noticed the hawk resting quietly. It was in clear view but was sitting in an area surrounded by branches and so if you weren't looking you would never spot it. When going on a nature hike, it pays to remember to slow down and look everywhere for things you may otherwise miss.
