Obrigado! LOL ..... este foi o melhor que pude fazer. Vi-lhe estender a mão para o rato, mas antes que eu pudesse obter fotos alguém veio e o afugentei. Claro, ele iria voar longe dessa forma. Então eu fui deixado com a cauda vermelha e pés.

Thanks! LOL.....this was the best I could do. I saw him snatch the mouse up but before I could get photos someone came along and scared him away. Of course, he would fly away in this manner. So I was left with the red tail & feet.

I looked at the picture for a long time before I read the title. I am glad to know what it was. You did very well!!

I recognize that end, that is the way we see them most of the time. Great capture, JF!

Thanks, Margot & Jean!

Actually I don't think it is that great a photo but I just got a laugh out of it as it truly shows the red tail of the hawk!

Thanks for both your visits.
