Got lucky on this one for sure. Just happened to be looking out our front door, and see a bunch of white in the center of the yard. Looking closer I see this magnificent sleek Sharp-Shinned hawk having dinner. Tried to get a few photos thru the kitchen window, but the flash just created one big whiteout. So I slowly opened the front door, and slipped out as quietly as I could to the front deck. Took three quick photos figuring she would bolt, which didn't happen. She just stayed right there content on finishing her dinner. I watched for a few more seconds til a pang of guilt took over. Slipped back inside, popped a cold one, and watched til she took flight. Awesome experience!
