Jumping Hawk

Jumping Hawk

Oct. 27, 2014, Ridgefield NWR, an immature Red-tailed Hawk practices his hunting skills by attacking a clump of grass.  The bird jumped up and down several times with the grass in its talons before flying off.  Was hoping for a better pose but this was the best of the lot.   Canon 5D Mark III, 1/2000, f5, ISO 640, 500mm, 1:37 p.m.
