A Red-tailed Experience!

Getting back to telling some stories, once in a while 
something cool happens, and I am able to catch
 it with my photography gear. I hope to keep 
NIOM busy here with something interesting 
every week or two.

I was out recently with my friend and guest Thomas Vijayan
 and his wonderful wife on a progam designed to
find and photograph red-tailed hawks.

We found one quickly, as this is the season!  This bird was 
perched on the highway fencing, so we were a bit disappointed. Not
for long, as we were able to get out of the truck, 
photograph the bird from a close range of 20 feet, and 
watch it have a successful kill right at our feet!

Warning... the images below are a bit gory, so
be careful if you do not enjoy such images.

 I think I see something!
 I'm going in!
 What luck, I think I got em!
 Yes. success!
 Dinner time!
 Last call!
 That was good, now for some more!

Thanks for looking!
