Catch of the Day

By jmbphoto
This is a red shouldered hawk female who swept down before me and grabbed something from the grass. I followed it up to a branch and just took the shot. I was pleseantly surprised to see the "catch of the day" which it soon after gave to the 2 babies in the nest 30 feet above!
The lizard is not photoshopped!
