Broad-winged Hawk

Lake Guntersville State Park

Taken at Lake Guntersville State Park in northeast Alabama. I was walking and heard a whistle, which scared me because I thought I was alone. Finally I spotted her and realized she was warning me to back off. :)

She didn't kill the squirrel, she grabbed it out of the road. I took a few pictures of her and left her be. I watched her for a while from a distance and she must've been young because she was having a hard time picking up that squirrel.

other sizes: small medium original

Wow, what a moment in time for a photographer to be there for! So sad, but that's Mother Nature, the hawk has to eat too.

Great shot, nature at her best.

Incredible discovery and great shot! I'd be head over heels delirious to capture something like this, and probably a little bit grossed out and sad.
