Close Encounter with a Red-Shouldered Hawk

Below are photos of a recent encounter with a Red-Shouldered Hawk that flew within 15 feet of my head. Of course every photo was out of focus as it was flying about 40 mph right at me and needless to say I choked.

Whoever said they are more afraid of you than you are of them is wrong.
