A Hawk Gets Lunch

We were driving home from the beach today and turned down a nice country road that we hadn't been on before. We noticed this hawk (maybe a Red-Tailed Buteo jamaicensis) perched on a wire, so we pulled over to see if we could get a picture of it. The following shots are how the action unfolded. (Definitely click on the pictures for a much larger view.)

It flew away, lunch in talons, beyond the flowers and fence and out of sight.
