The Rough Legged Hawk Protecting his prize…A Hen Mallard! Wearing full camouflage was the ticket to this capture… Allowing this Rough Legged Hawk to remain calm. He noticed me a couple of times, this was his reaction! This photo is one I selected from about 50 captures!
One of the most exciting days in the field that I had in 2015

A very impressive looking hawk, I like the way he’s using his wing to shield his kill, and I also like how I can see the mallards feathers scattered around. Awesome image

Beautiful color and detail! I really like how his colors blend with the vegetation yet because of your focus his gorgeous face and wing pop right out at the viewer!
