My hope had been to grab a few pictures of this bird before he flew away. But instead, he was determined to finish his meal; a foolish young rabbit that had not yet learned to look up before going out into the open. This hawk happily continued eating breakfast while I snapped away and moved around to get several different views of him. I probably spent 20 minutes and ended up with about 100 pictures, some of which were amazing closeups of his face that would normally require a telephoto lense (one view of which has been added to the drawing). Instead, my shots were taken with just a simple pocket digital camera.
Finally, I decided to leave him in peace and soon after he flew off to a tree with the remainder of his meal (another view also shown in the drawing). Throughout the afternoon he was visible from our house sitting in the tree, probably snoozing with a full stomach.
