This red tailed hawk had taken a squirrel and consumed most of it high in a tree. It took off thru the woods with the remains for parts unknown and I snapped this pic as part of an aiservo burst. This is a 60% crop. I am amazed at the performance of this relatively lightweight camera/lens combination. Not a great photo but a fun capture.
