Great pictures!

I was in the southbound lane (in a car) stopped at a red light in Atlanta a few years ago. All of a sudden, a pigeon fluttered down and landed in the northbound lane beside me.

Huh, I thought. That's odd.

Then the hawk that had knocked it down landed on top of it.

The whole tableau held for a few seconds after the light changed, because we were all watching hawk & pigeon. Then, since it was rush hour, everyone had to move. I think the hawk had to leave the pigeon behind. :(


MAN, I'M SO JEALOUS!!! I live in a small town in Central Kentucky and rarely see such an awesome sight! And I'm pretty sure I'd never get to my camera in time. Lucky you! (GREAT PHOTO, by the way!)

This is, in a way, beautiful. Thank you for sharing!

Beautiful pics! What a gorgeous bird. One day I watched a crow chase a cat across the street. The crow pecked at the cat's head and the cat sprinted even faster and finally got under shelter.


Very cool. I always see squirrels and small birds on my ride and almost always rabbits. I have sometimes seen fox, raccoon, and snakes. Once I saw a turkey and another time a white owl. I saw the owl in pre-dawn light just as I entered a trail. He looked at me a moment and then flew off. I figured he had caught a rodent in the trail, but I didn't see anything in his claws as he flew off or on the trail where he was sitting.


I routinely almost plow into deer on my commute to Ft. Carson from downtown Colorado Springs on both the Greenway Trail and on surface roads. And by "plow into" I mean: they are completely unconcerned with human traffic, and will either not move off the path or simply continue crossing in front of a rider (me) mere seconds from an impact. One usually does not spot them until the last moment either (they're quite sneaky little ninjas).


Crazy, great pics! I love these!
