While wandering by a field I felt a large shadow pass over me. As I followed the shadow I noticed that it was a hawk with something in it's beak. I tracked it to one of the trees, and by patiently waiting I was able to get multiple pictures - including this one as the hawk lifted it's head with the prey still hanging.
