Basic editing, crop, noise reduction, levels, Saturation, USM, resize, USM, and SFW.

The hawk came back this week and was on the ground with his catch. That is blood on his beak and I thought it was a little grusome to put the shot with his prey. I got within 15 feet of this awesome bird. I took over 250 pics in just a few minutes.

Here is what I was originally going to enter.

This is a super wildlife shot! I have gotten a few great hawk shots but always at a zoo.

Splendid image, nicely captured, and presented. Color saturation is terrific. Composition is very good (maybe just a little tight at the top). Among the best images I've seen so far in voting the challenge.
