Well since this is the place to post off topic subjects, here goes. If you like Hawks then have a look. As I was driving by a hawk I was lucky enough to see him/her pounce on a unsuspecting rabbit. Now - dont feel sorry for the rabbit, we have hundreds of them here per sq. acre and there existance in life is to feed the stronger, besides eating my wifes flowers http://static.rcgroups.com/forums/images/smilies/biggrin.gif

Iowa is known as the 'Hawkeye State', so enjoy. Here is a small video of the hawk having supper (relax, you cant see all the carnage) and some stills.

Great shots! We've got plenty of Red Tailed Hawks around here, I always see them by the roadways on wires and signs, looking for food. I love hawks, especially Red Tails, I think they're the coolest things.

Ya they are neat. I like the 4th picture...as I was looking through the viewfinder I was like 'wow he's staring at me'.... my camera has a 40x zoom, but seemed like I was right there!

Eagles and hawks, they are the neatest thing. I wish I had my camera everytime I saw a bald eagle.....right over my house one day and I had nothing...
