Saw this guy in Brazos Bend state park in February. He flew over so fast didn't have time to make any camera adjustments & the exposure is terrible. I am on a new computer system & don't have any photo editing software yet.... if anyone wants to try & enhance this for us it should make an ID much easier! I can email the original (it's large) or you can try to use this one.

Tried lightening it in photoshop; unfortunately, it's solid black with no detail. So I fear it'll have to remain a UFO.
oh well. Only raptors/hawks I remember seeing that day was an american kestrel.... and I have some other photos that actually turned out ok of him! Thanks
