Nice capture of this hawk and it's dinner! From the coloration of the tail feathers of his prey,the bird appears to be a morning dove,or something quite similar,our morning doves have the white tipped tail feathers separated from the gray coloration by the band of black. They tend to be a favorite of our sharp shin and Cooper's hawks because they can't fly off fast enough.Great focus and nicely composed with a leafy green backdrop. It's wonderful that you had this opportunity to get this great photo! :) LeeAnn

A very nice shot. The victim is certainly good sized but I think it might be a dove or possibly a pigeon. The hawk is very well shown and the colors are outstanding.

I came, I saw and Conquered. Oh gee, this hurts, but it is their kingdom. In all kingdoms, human, birds, and all animals there is death to all things. It just still hurts. This is gorgeous! Clean and clear. Love your framing here and those green leaves with all that light play. Brilliant work!

Comment from Robert Plain


I have to agree with you, Dale. I sure looks like a hawk to me, too. Looks too large to be much of anything else with that color feathers. Possibly a green heron but I'm going with a hawk. At any rate - a great catch.

Comment from Dick Lee Shia


Wow! This is a brutally cute & candid wildlife portrait!
He looks confident with that one leg raised "clamping" its capture--proudly his meal!

Sharply focused.
Fine facial features & fluffy textures.
Filtered or bounced illumination lends a greenish undertone.

Good perspective & long depth of field...

Thanks for sharing...

Comment from Susan F. M. T.


Dale,
A brilliant shot of the Hawk with it's dead prey held firmly in it's talons while the Hawk keeps a beady eye on you. It's prey does look like a Hawk of some species of a similar size to it's killer! the green foliage making the perfect contrasting background. Beautiful composition, framing & lighting taken with superb camera techniques & sharp focus.
Susan

Wow Dale!this is a good capture to show how the hawk hunts to survive ! This is well focused, the image is clear, exposure is well managed, colors and tones are natural. Well composed with the hawk holding the other bird down with his left claws! Well presented!

Hi Dale!
Not being an Ornithologist I have no idea as to what species of bird this well photographed Raptor has in her claws,my friend,but I'm certainly enjoying this wonderful picture of her that you've presented us with!
It's a 'Good Show' indeed! : )
