Day 1 - Bandit at 9 O'Clock High!

A Hummingbird takes a dive at a juvenile Red-tailed Hawk

On my first morning hiking I was slowly making my way across the small prairie section when I noticed all the little birds were gone. Slowly turning I found this guy sitting not more than 25' (~8 m). I aimed my camera for about 15 minutes at it when suddenly a hummingbird came swooping in!
