This is a juvenile Hawk. A birder friend witnessed and taken picture of him capturing a small animal and eating it. I got there when it was over.

awesome pose, I like the head turn and the look of the hawk.
The perch is also fantastic and I like the leaves on the left side.

i'am glad that you left a bit of the bush on the left hand-side, it adds to the image taken.

Very cool image, I like the spotlight look on the head, and all that green.
