On the Hunt

It seems the hawks were not the only things on the hunt today…


Or the photographer stalking them.

Something else lurks in the meadow.

  1. Ha Ha Ha! Absolutely love this! That is one intimidating feline predator. The raptors were probably shivering in their talons!
    Wonderful captures too!

  2. I cannot tell from your pic just how big the “winged guy” is, but many cats around here get reported missing when we have visiting hawks! Sadly, people still allow their cats to roam.

    1. Good point. This particular cat was at no risk from these hawks…a heavyweight. But the people who live in the houses which border the meadow are hopefully careful about their small dogs and cats.
