That was a lucky shot, indeed. I wasn't using my long lens, which is best for getting shots of birds and distant objects. The hawk flew overhead and I quickly took the shot, knowing that it wouldn't be a high-resolution image. I didn't know there was a snake in the hawk's beak until I uploaded the shot to my laptop and zoomed in.

Beautiful shots. Do you know what kind of tree that is with the thorns? flying_wahini Apr 2024 #1
