Four shot collage of a large hawk flying away with its morning catch. This series of images of a large hawk flying away with a full grown rabbit in its talons was taken through the car windshield as I got to the Bridges Golf Course where I play each week in Columbia Illinois.
I always drive with my camera sitting on the seat beside me. Often to the chagrin of some of my friends here on Redbubble and some of my followers on Facebook. I do shoot images while driving! Honestly, I just point and shoot instead of looking through the viewfinder and focusing so it is not as dangerous as it may seem. I miss a lot of shots that are not well framed but I get some interesting ones also. I was nearly stopped ~ maybe 5 mph ~ when I took these shots.
The hawk was on the ground right beside the drive way into the golf course and flew up when I approached. Imagine my surprise when I saw a full grown rabbit hanging from its talons.
