A Nice Breakfast

This morning I noticed a red tailed hawk sitting on a branch in a tree across the ravine from my office.  It had captured and was about to devour a chipmunk.  I set up the Canon 5D Mark ll and took some footage as it ate the hapless creature.  I’m still working on getting the compression settings right for the web, so I apologize if the quality of the image isn’t too good.  If you watch carefully in the beginning, the hawk beheads the rodent and swallows the head whole in one big gulp.  Mmmmm – a nice breakfast!  There are two clicks in the movie which is where I took a couple of still frames (still testing the camera).  Enjoy!
