While possibly one of the most photographed species of hawk in the United States, when one allows you comfortably to share space, it is hard to resist. This was taken moments after this handsome raptor landed about eye-level with me with a freshly caught mole in its talons. He gave me a few quick looks and once convinced that I wasn’t a threat to his meal, proceeded to tuck in and eat the entire rodent. I took photos for a few minutes then just sat back and watched nature take its course.
