broad winged hawk seen behind my office while on a break. earlier in the day, i saw him flying past with a 4 ft. snake in it's talons, and couldn't get my camera up and on fast enough to snap. in the afternoon i got lucky and he came back to pose.

Just slightly out of focus... Too bad. Still a 7 though.

It seems to me the memoir should be about you, the photographer, as opposed to the bird, but at least you connected the title to a story. As for the photo, I have a few concerns, but you can decide whether they're worth your worrying about: the bird doesn't seem as sharp as the branches in between it and the camera, the composition feels a little unbalanced - try it with most of the left side cropped out, and the colors seem a little green.

Beautiful pic! Wish you could've gotten its head more in focus though!
