Little Life and Death

Came upon a Red-tailed Hawk entangled by a coachwhip snake (1st picture). Redtail looked pretty still, so unwound it from the coachwhip. The Redtail stood up (2nd picture), but when I dropped the snake to frame some more pictures, the Redtail came over and grabbed the snake again (third picture). They ended up in dual head-locks (fifth to end pictures). After taking a few more pictures, let them be, but looked like the Redtail had the edge.
