OK, here is the gear I was using:

Olympus e500, p-mode, 1/640shutter, 200iso, wb-auto, sigma 50-500mm lens and all photos were taking at the full 500mm without a tripod (tripod was being using for my digiscoping setup and I got too lazy to swap things around)



Eyeing up the next meal



chasing on the ground his next meal



making sure no northern harriers were around to steal his food

Skinning his lunch





Finally eating some of the meaty part





Is that the small or large intestine?





After finishing a few more bites, the red tail proceeded to head off to another tree.. He perches and preened for about 20 minutes before he went on the hunt again. I had the pleasure of watching this red tail catch 3 meals while only missing once.. Not a bad success rate I'd say for a wild animal!!

Thanx for the great comments!!

Funny note about those photos, I took over 230 photos of that same red tail that day. While I was shooting the hawk, I missed out on a short view of a northern shrike, barn owl and a red headed woodpecker.. But, I still very content with missing out on those considering what I was able to capture..
