I was out watching an Osprey nest on Mare Island California, when I heard a tremendous commotion in the air behind me. The unmistakable screech of a red-tailed hawk, then another. The hawks of the island are excellent snake hunters, and I guess there was a dispute going on. Looks like they got the snake right as it was moulting. 7D2 with 500mm.
