Looking For Prey - Red Tailed Hawk

Photograph - Photography - Paint Finish
This Red Tailed Hawk was quietly sitting overhead from me and I didn't notice it until I heard a smaller yellow breasted bird singing away and followed it through the branches. It landed just above the hunter. All the noise was chatter to discourage the hawk from his place. As I took a series of photos it would glance down at me as though I were interrupting it's concentration. It suddenly dropped off the branch spreading it's wings and glided 50 yards where it plucked a gopher out of it's hole and sped off with it. Yes, he was waiting for just the right moment. When it came he struck like lightning.
