One in a million hawk photo

Posted on Updated on

This is the coolest wildlife photo I have ever taken.

It is a red-tailed hawk carrying a (state) threatened Texas kangaroo rat in one talon and with a band showing it had been captured and released at some point with the other.

Talk about a rarity.

I shot this in Port Mansfield, TX  in 2008.
