Hummingbird Festival

okay, so we went to the hummingbird festival. We saw lots of cool stuff, but sadly I  only took pictures of the awesome birds from the Pueblo Raptor Center. In my defense, I got some REALLY good images.

Lazy circles in the sky

My favorite pair of Hawks are back on their nest near my office. He did his usual behavior, yell at me a few times and then circle overhead to see what I was up to. I don’t think they have laid eggs yet, both were on the move at the same time.

Hawk vs Snake

yes, the hawk wins. Sorry about the last image’s quality. I shot it leaning out the passenger side window, from the drivers side. No easy task with a fully extended 500mm lens. these shots show the progression of the attack. from lamp post, to where he missed it, then hit it before it got to the weeds.
