Hawk vs. Snake

8/12/2013 Hawk vs. Snake

Hawk vs. Snake  It’s really no match; the hawk wins almost every time.  Tonight I attended a talk given by John Granata, an accomplished fine art photographer and artist, sponsored by MAPS, Morton Arboretum Photographers Society.  It was too dark to capture an image after the talk so I found an image captured at the arboretum a few years ago.  This image is one of a series of this hawk captured just off the road going through the arboretum.  He was too busy with the snake to worry about a few vehicles passing by.  By the way, if you live in northern Illinois and have not been to the Morton Arboretum, you are missing a great treat.
