A Juvenile Cooper's Hawk

I got closer this time. The last time I saw a Cooper's it was quite far away and the picture I posted suffered. I found this one in my own backyard. I watched him for at least a half-hour and got within ten feet of him several times. He didn't seem to mind being photographed, and so I shot pictures until my shutter shuddered. I watched him as he watched nearby birds, but he didn't go after any while I was watching. Maybe he had his eye on our Maltese who was on the deck barking at him, though I'm told the Hawk is partial to other birds and I have nothing to worry about.
