I was wandering down the trail at Land's End when all of a sudden birdy here drops out of the sky and grabs this unfortunate creature and takes off again. Is it a Golden Eagle? Or a Red-Tail Hawk? Not sure. It's either a big hawk or a young eagle. Don't know my birds very well.

Anyway, caught it at the top of the frame, so had to crop it down a bit. Focus could have been better too - but it wasn't like I was expecting this to happen. ;-)

(Update: Further investigation tells me this is a hawk...)
