14th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Atlanta Hawk Over Phenex

A hawk decides to perch atop the statue of a bird and observe Atlantans walking at their leisure on Peachtree Street. If it was hunting it seem very patient within its method. It even watch me as I walked around at the statue's base snapping my pictures expecting it to fly away at any moment. I wanted to capture images as it flew away, but it stayed put.
