Hawk Photographed Eying Squirrel with a Turtle in it's Talons

Categories: Wildlife

Photographer Robbie Lyle captured a rare and exciting shot in his backyard in Florida! I live on the Alafia river in Riverview Florida. 

There is a breeding pair of these beauties that nest by my place. I've lived here for the last 18 yrs.  Here is a link to my Flicker page, where I continually post exciting photography!  Thanks for the interest! 


You'll have to look closely to see the small turtle in the hawks talons.  Photo originally noticed in the Facebook group:  Florida Photography  Robbie Hosts the Facebook page:  Photoshop and Lightroom Unlimited

Rarely does the squirrel escape the descending hawk.....
