After shooting from the glass door I got brave enough to enter the yard from a side door and snuck up behind the hawk, positioning myself about 20' away. Once I was satisfied with the shots, I began to wonder what I would do if/when the hawk went after the innocently feeding birds. Before I could think more about that scenario, SWOOSH, off he went after the cowbird. Thankfully, he missed and flew up into the holly tree, seemingly embarrassed. It happened so fast I didn't have a chance to even bring the camera back up to my eye.
Would I have continued to shoot at the carnage or would I have stopped the hawk? After all, the hawk has to eat, too. Hmmm...guess I'll never know the answer, but I'd like to think that I would have stopped it. What would you do in that situation?
|Yeah, I missed. So what?|
