    1. You are absolutely correct, this bird is very much alive and vital. I watched him/her for a long time and have seen what it does to its food. I would not want to be on the receiving end of the food chain.

    1. This Hawk was on the alert the entire time I watched it. Even when it was not eating something, it continued to watch for other prey (along with keeping an eye on me too).

  3. I think hawks are majestic. We love to watch for them whenever we travel the I-5 freeway. They love to sit on the fences that run along the freeway next to open fields. Love this shot and the bokeh effect.

  4. I'll just echo what others have said, John. Nothing original from me today. It is a good picture, though. Wish I had taken it.
