Mysore Hawk – Taking Flight, originally uploaded by rpgold.

We were hanging around the flat this afternoon enjoying a lazy full moon day.

Rachelle was preparing something in our kitchen and she called for me to come quickly as there was a large hawk just outside our window.

I had a look and hurried to grab our camera. Usually, time is against me when trying to grab the camera as there’s a lens change involved to get decent wildlife shots.

Thankfully, the hawk was interested in our neighbour’s chickens and gave me ample time to snap away.

There are a few more pics in our flickr photostream.
