Take out diner

I first saw that red tail hawk pretty far back, I slowly approached and to my surprise it did not fly away.
Suddenly he dove to the ground and came back up with a mouse in his beak. I followed him back to his tree, and he flew away again with his prey. I took about 20 shots this the best of the bunch.

Canon EOS 20D ,Canon EF 200mm f/2.8L USM
1/800s f/5.0 at 200.0mm iso200 full exif

The alchemistry of nature -- mouse becomes hawk. A beautiful photo -- wonderful detail.

Amazing shot! Your hawk is certainly happy and proud and about to have a fine little appetizer! Love your title as well.

This is a spectacular shot. It's still so sharp despite the fuss of running around with this bird! Vote
