A Sharp-shinned hawk in the back yard hunting small birds. this hawk was not concerned about me being only 50 feet away. he moved from a small tree to on top of a garden wind chime and remained as I photographed him/her. he looked directly at me several times but only took off when a small bird was headed to the feeder and he was determined to get the small bird for brunch.
