    Edit Photo Details Hawk falls silent seeing a wasp   #wasp #bird #bee #hawk
    This is a young imprint male cooper's hawk raised by a falconer. He has a penchant for loudly screaming all day, but for half a second, he was stunned into silence when a yellow jacket buzzed past his beak. I love how at this moment, only one eye is focused on the insect.

    Wow-a great example of you've just got to be ready. When the camera goes on around your neck, or on your shoulder, not only should it be ready (exposure, ISO, etc.) but you should immediately start thinking and seeing photographically. You never know when that photo pop will make itself available. Be ready.
