While driving through the desert SW of Prescott AZ earlier in the week, we had this red-tailed hawk swoop past us with a snake in his talons. He landed on a power pole next to us and allowed me to get out, walk past him to better the light, and take a number of photos. Can anyone tell me what kind of snake it was?

What a neat shot. Looks like the snake wasn't willing to give up easily!

Neat shots, Al. You are quite the opportunist!

I think the red-tail was the opportunist in the bunch.
