The Red Tailed Hawk in sharp pursuit with its piercing yellow eyes finds its prey. Unfortunately, the prey at this point was me! I watched with my camera in focus, standing my ground as the hawk swooped down with its sharp talons tucked securely under its signature red tail ready to strike at a moment's notice. I snapped a few photos as it continued its focused descend towards me and I began to realize the red-tailed hawk was getting much too close for my comfort before the size of its target (me!) became apparent to him and he swerved effortlessly from his 100 miles per hour dive outward and disappeared into the countryside. As I walked away, the rth came back and made a few passes high in the sky above not completely convinced he wasn't up to making a meal of me...nor was I completely convinced he woundn't have!
