Default Hawk and Squirrel

Warning: This was taken with the Panasonic GX7 and 100-300 lens!
BUT there are two good reasons:
1) The E-M1 was not available, so this was the only micro 4/3 possibility.
2) The Panasonic forum is just about dead.

So, I hope it is okay to post this here.

I thought it was a blast, since the squirrel seemed to be sneaking up on the hawk until the hawk looked his way. (The 100mm at the wide end barely allowed me to get both in the same frame. I was in the doorway of the house and couldn't zoom out with my feet.)

cool sequence and nice red-shouldered hawk you have there, a bit small to take that squirrel and also not it's preferred prey of snakes and frogs, luckily for the squirrel the hawk must not have been too hungry!

I agree

In the last image the hawk is saying
" I can't believe it, I must be dreaming "

Thanks for the comments. It was a humorous little interlude.

Maybe the squirrel is nearsighted. He certainly seemed purposeful, until the hawk turned its head.

Haha, see I was imagining a human facial expression that roughly translates to "you idiot . . ."
