That's really a great shot. Unusual stand for the bird - too bad exposure not quite right but dang, its a great catch - no pun intended.

When you're finished, send that bird over here it would have a feast on those tree rodents.

Did the hawk catch the squirrel ? Nice shot though. Hand held? Grab shots are sometimes the most interesting of the day.

Nope, I think he got spooked when he saw my wife and I.* As for the equipment, I had my EOS 30d with me - with the 50/1.8 lens on, unfortunately.* Frankly, I was a little nervous myself, which probably didn't help the shot much.* But that thing's talons are long and I'll bet SHARP!
