[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I was sitting and relaxing at the pool of my buddy's house, as he came back from the service station and told me that a Hawk killed a grey squirrel at the front garden of his neighbor. I take my camera which still had the wrong lens but I was thinking try it or leave it.

Hello Sascha,
From the looks of your photo I believe you made the right choice in grabbing the camera, wrong lens or not. A good shot of this attractive hawk as it visits it's kill. Focus appears sharp and colors are beautiful. You were fortunate to have had such a chance encounter with this neat looking bird of prey. Great work considering it was taken at the spur of the moment.

Hi Sascha,beautiful capture of this wawk walking on the ground,there is all the moving effect into the pic watching the trembled background,perfect DOF for the best details,i like it! Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano

Hello Sascha,
Great capture of a very nice specie of bird.
As usual a fantastic clarity and razor sharpness. Lovely indeed this interesting hawk.

Hello Sascha,
Beautiful species and nice opportunity to frame. But to me its just a click, not a PHOTOGRAPH like your previous post. I think you understand what I mean. Natural color and well sharp picture.
Thanks for sharing,

Bonjour Sascha,
Très belle scène de la vie sauvage habilement et harmonieusement restituée.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
