I was thrilled when my brother Patrick ran into the house telling me there was a hawk hanging out right behind our back fence. So I sent him out with my camera with instructions to just click away - its digital (he's not quite into the digital age yet). I figured he'd get some shots of the hawk looking serene, or giving him the ol' evil-eye, and maybe even of the hawk as it took off. I was wrong. Apparently it was meal-time for this Sharp-shinned Hawk.
