Red-tailed Hawks and Robins

I captured these images using a Celestron telescope and a Canon 70D that I was getting setup in my backyard for some astrophotography. I noticed these Red-tailed Hawks in a tree about 80 yards from our house. They were both sitting there for a while as a group of Robins were harassing them. One of them got awfully close, but eventually both Hawks flew away.

Right place, right time. I agree with Tom on the 2nd image. You could put a lot of entertaining captions on that image.

Thanks for posting.

I was out there for about an hour before I got it. The robin kept bouncing around from branch to branch and finally landed there. I snapped three shots before it flew off again.

Thanks for the comments.
