Super shot, Jeff.

I saw one dive into my garden last year and snatch a small bird.

Great photo, to snap him while he was still.

blends in with the tree but keeping a eye on things

Thanks fred/peter, we have a fishpond in the garden just below these trees and all the local sparrows and blackbirds, etc drink from it. The hawk watched them intently but decided to leave them alone.
