Red Shouldered Hawk with Squirrel by 

Canon PowerShot SX260 HS; 1/125s, f/6.8, ISO 800, focal length 90.0mm; AUTO setting

I saw a young dead squirrel in the middle of the road in front of my house in Dunnellon, Florida, U.S.A. Next time I looked out, it was gone. A short time later I spotted this hawk feeding on the squirrel on my neighbor’s front lawn. I peered over a bush to get this shot.

Having lived most of my life in the northeast U.S., I am enjoying retired life in sunny Florida. I enjoy photographing many different kinds of things, but especially flowers and animals, including the beautiful birds found here in Florida. I am currently using a Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D camera, a Canon 55-250 mm telescopic zoom lens, and a Sony P10 Cyber-shot digital camera. My newest acquisition is a Canon PowerShot SX260 HS, a point and shoot which I will be carrying in my purse.

    Good catch, Dot (guess it was a good catch for the hawk, too)!

  • Second dead squirrel I saw in the road in a week. I think this hawk is well fed. Probably has a little family to feed.
