Red-Shouldered Hawk (please excuse the blur)

Red-Shouldered Hawk (please excuse the blur)

On a balmy day, in the month of May, around White Rock Lake I was walking. Suddenly this hawk came flying right at me. I think it must not have noticed me until just before it turned sideways, flared, and pounced on the lizard that was sunning on a Pecan tree just 15 feet from where I stood. I may have distracted Mamma Hawk just enough to foil its attempt to grab food for chicks in the nest that I have been watching. Sorry, Mrs. Hawk.
