I enjoyed watching this Rough-Legged Hawk hunt this afternoon on the North Shore of Lake Superior. In total I spent 18 minutes with this hawk. When it made its kill, I worked my way in a bit closer to get these photos. When it took off, it only flew up to the nearest telephone pole and continued hunting. Please note the hawk took off because it was finished eating, not because I scared it!
