I saw this Hawk eating an Opossum in a field near my home here in Arkansas. I went to my house and got my camera and large lens. I was lucky this Hawk remained with the dead Opossum.
I parked on the side of the road and walked as close as I could. I photographed the Hawk while hand-holding my camera and lens.
