Here's a capture from yesterday of a Red-shouldered Hawk in the process of consuming a Prairie King Snake he just captured - a near 100% crop

Very nice, Dean. KUDOS.


Have plenty of Canons, enough ammo, enough to blow 'em to "L". Now, I just have to learn to aim.

Really nice capture! Must have been tough to get a clear shot through all that foliage.
