HAWKS, OWLS, EAGLES - shanekirk

January 11th, 2010 in Belton, Missouri. The first Red-Shouldered hawk I've photographed. This hawk was in the same dead tree three afternoons in a row. I shot many photos of him and twice(different days) he swooped down for something. I was stunned when I saw this on the camera screen. Still to this day my personal favorite.
