Feeding hawk

I was taking some shots of my wife's flowers when I turned around and saw this hawk not more than 20 feet away. It had caught a dove. I kept shooting and taking a step closer. I got within 15 feet before it decided to leave with its dinner.

EOS Rebel T7, ISO 200, 1/400, f/7.1, 240mm.  Not the best but I was shooting from shade, across a sunny strip to more shade under a tree.IMG_7795 (1).JPG

Nice shot of a Cooper's Hawk! Look at that red eye! They often chase the doves in our yard.

Re: Feeding hawk

Thank you. Had one that stayed around for days. Squirrels, birds and rabbits provided a buffet. Took a sackful of photos.
