I don't think he can read!

09-RedTailHawk-4387, originally uploaded by Kadath.

On my way in to Ryan's game tonight I casually looked over one shoulder and found myself less than 6 feet away from this red tailed hawk! Silently cursing I remembered I didn't have a memory card in the D300. So I stopped and quietly pulled out my pack of Sandisks and put one in, slowly. Once in I saw what I feared most, 14 remaining shots. I took a half dozen then started to pull out my pack again when I saw a woman quickly approaching yapping on her cell phone at the top of her lungs. Of course she scared it off, and the tail-feathers you see in the last two frames are the results.

If you look closely you can see feathers in his beak, either he had a songbird for dinner or was preening himself.

I thought the Sign on the can ruined the shot, I might try photoshopping that out, but it also adds a bit of irony, don't you think?

Full set -here-
