This Red-shouldered Hawk kept a vigilant watch while he snarfed down lunch, his head was swiveling all around.
I hadn’t seen him land so didn’t know what he might be eating.
I was rather surprised when I developed these photos that it was a snake and at the way it was coiled up under his feet.
From a little further down the path the background was nicer and the snake out of view.
