Eurasian Sparrowhawk (Accipiter nisus)

Eurasian Sparrowhawk (Accipiter nisus)

I was walking around in the woods when I heard a strange sound that appeared to be coming from a crow. I stopped to see what it was and saw it fighting with a sparrowhawk. The whole thing happened very fast and one time the hawk even grabbed the crow by the tailfeathers! But I'm glad I got a few shots including the one above. (The image is a 75% crop of the original)

Canon EOS 1D
1/1250s f/11.0 at 700.0mm iso1000 full exif
