I usually don't post so many bird shots in a week but I have gotten some good and different ones lately so I wanted to share. This was an unusual visitor to my yard a few days ago. This is a Sharp-shinned Hawk and I think it had one of my little visitors in it's talons unfortunately. That's the circle of life I guess. I captured this with only my portrait lens on because I just shot with what was on the camera so I wouldn't miss it. I knew it wouldn't stay long and I was right as I only had time to get off a couple of shots. This one is quite heavily cropped put I must say my new camera's sensor is very impressive at allowing for that and the image to still be so sharp and good quality. I love the red eyes on this hawk.
