    Very lucky capture and well done getting such clear and sharp shots!
    was the bird traveling far with his kill or was it just a short flap away from the killzone?

    Thanks! I actually had the WRONG lens on for this. I was going to shoot a landscape shot with my 24-105mm when I heard a commotion in the bushes. He and his dinner were about 30 feet away. He killed the rabbit before I got there and was standing on him in pic#3. Then he flew away with it in pics #1 and #2.

    Amazing shots!

    I have a pair of hawks that bring their kill into our yard to eat. I hate when they bring the rabbits in.

    Thanks everyone! I also have some pictures of the hawk dropping the rabbit on the ground, and another one of the poor dead fellow. But I figured no one really want's to see that.

    that awesome. The only times a saw a hawk grab a rabbit was when i had the rabbit on a rope and pulling it behind me (was a dead rabbit btw) Did that too train a hawk to use for hunting.
    Really a thrilling sight to see, i cant imagine to see it in the wild like that. And you captured it very well too :)

    I used ACDSee Pro 2 to sharpen them the default: threshold - 10, radius - 5, and amount - 100. It has always worked for me. The images were a bit blurry for sure. Haha! Only the right location at the right time with the right gear at the wrong settings. I was shooting landscapes with my 5D at the time with my 24-105mm set to JPEG and full saturation as it was a grey, cloudy day.
