Hi there
Didn't post any photo for very loooong time :) I wanted to share an unusual action shot. This was Red-tail Hawk trying to kill juvenile crow... after 15sec of fighting for life crow succeeded to liberate him self and fly away followed by this raptor... I don't know how it ended for this crow but it was interesting to witness this unexpected action.
Captured from a car on the side way with 70-200 + 1,4 TC. The shot was cropped more than 70% and was now viewed in 100%.

Regards / Ralf

Great job with this capture. With the way crows harass everything, I'm sure that hawk will be forever harassed by the crows flock for this incident.

Great to see you posting after a long gap of time, Ralf.
This is a truly impressive action shot.
The raptor looks majestic and in control of the situation.
Thanks for sharing this beauty. Hope you will continue to post here from now on.

Amazing scene and interesting note Ralf! A great photo!

Hello Ralf

Yes the last time it was a long long time ago,
welcome back, great close-up shot of life
and dead struggle from the world of birds,
you captured them in a great action pose, TFS


A good capture with perfect timing and sharpness.


Hallo Ralf
I like this image very much, it is so natural and has such a lot of real nature in it. It feels as if I am watching it myself. I must have been great seeing the moment of action. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
