Harris Hawk Once Again

"Master of the Skies" is a female Harris' hawk, sitting on a skeleton of a saguaro cactus while a passing cloud shades the predator, leaving her almost silhouetted against the sky.

If I were a mouse or a bunny, I might be horrified by this sight. But as a human bean (?!?), I admire the beauty of these raptors.
