More & More Bobcat Pictures

Hawk Got Another Squirrel

The game camera got this shot of a red shouldered hawk yesterday afternoon. I'm still impressed that it can shoot pictures fast enough to get things like spread wings on landing. A closer look shows something furry, most likely a squirrel, … [Read more...]
