Of Snakes and Talons

While I was home for Easter, my Dad, a Florida native, asked me, "Did you see any snakes while on your trip to the Everglades?!?" I replied, "The only snake I saw was overhead, dangling from the talons of a Red-Shouldered Hawk."

Unfortunately I did not get a photo of this first-time spectacle for me, but it was sure neat to see. I did get a photo of a Red-Shouldered Hawk later, perched in a pine tree at Sweetwater Creek at the Big Cypress Preserve.
