[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This Sharp-Shinned Hawk managed to catch a starling from a large flock of birds, just outside where I work. I managed to catch a few pictures while it was enjoying its meal.
A crow was waiting nearby for some hopeful scraps.
Cropped, sharpened, noise reduction.
Another first catch for me!

Hi Lissa,
This photo deserves more attention, while the focus is soft, the action is not something one catches very often. Great job Lissa, thanks for sharing.
