Excellent photo. Where was it taken? Is it a Cooper's Hawk.

Natures Air Force strikes again! Poor little squirrel, probably did not know what hit him until it was to late. Nice job..

Very well done, Raghu-

It shows nicely that your FZ-35/38 is up to the job, as always.

Excellent capture Raghu - wildlife photography is hard at the best of times and you should be well pleased with that one. Please share how you caught it.

Thank you all for looking. I am glad it turned out well. It was taken with my FZ28.
Alun - it just happened. I was in a garden and heard the sudden alarming squeak of many squirrels. I thought a cat or such predator was on the prowl and went to see what was happening. I saw this bird swooping and pushing the squirrel out of a branch and pinning it to the ground, and standing firm and motionless. I had just the time to fetch my camera. As I slowly approached the bird, it flew away effortlessly lifting and carrying its prey. This was the better of the two shots I could get.

That is for sure an amazing shot. We have many hawks around the house here, but I have not been able to get any good shots yet.
