Red Tail Hawk on the hunt

This Red Tail Hawk was soaring over the lake near my home. He was definitely looking for prey. You can see it in his eyes he was focused and ready to dive for the prey he spotted. All the while the beautify clear blue sky of Colorado setting off the photo with eye catching clarity.
