Hello Neighbour, I don't like to think too much about it but I think my water-vole would make a tasty meal for your red-tailed hawkWink
I think the pose showing that profile of the beak against the oof trunk with the feet in the process of landing And the fortuitous framing show it off very well. I bet you were pleased to get that one.

One of the best 'grab' shots I've seen Sylvia, however I think it's far more than that, cracking shot and so well timed with some lovely detail,

Superb shot. Even though it's `just a grab shot', it's wonderfully framed and the background tones match the hawk nicely.
