Default Yup...

...Cooper's hawk! This guy landed about ten feet from me. He stayed a LONG time. I got about 150 frames of him before he spotted a feral cat.





The meathooks






"I'M HUNGRY!"




"Hello, Mr. Fluffy!"

I wish I could get that lucky. All great shots to me, but #2 "I'M HUNGRY!" is my fav.
