Hunting with the Hawks

Tommy and I got the opportunity to go to the farm to see some Red Tail Hawks hunt. The people who brought them out are members of the Georgia Falconry Club and get hawks periodically to rehabilitate and train. They brought Amelia and Haggis out for an hour or two of hunting. It was fascinating to watch them and to learn step-by-step what they were doing. I was able to get some fairly good close up shots of the hawks, but trying to get some action shots of them was impossible. Not only are they very quick, they blend into the surroundings so much that the camera could not focus on them.
