Snuck out back to try and capture a GBH that lit at the back of my pond…he decided I made him nervous.  Turned around and this hawk was toting a snake!  Try as I may, I cannot get sharp images of birds-in-flight.  pfft.  anyhoo, I tried some LR magic…but I still aint happy! :(

So I jacked with the camera when he shot over the hill and when he popped over the trees he had given up the snake.  Took a bunch more photos trying manual focus…pfft…

Those are some cool shots.Question is,where’s the snakes head? Did the snake find a release spot to chomp on?
