Not too many break dancers floating around here, but if you get lucky, once in awhile you`ll see a great performance in the sky.. The hawk happened to fly near the raven`s nest and suddenly all hell broke loose.. it was an amazing aerial chase that went on for miles across the sky.. happily neither got injured.

    Wow...this is an amazing capture..needs to go to Nat'l Geo. or Audubon! I am shocked that the hawk did not get the raven?

    Thanks for your comment, Lynn. Actually, the raven was the aggressor and the hawk was really fighting for its life.. I`ll post another image, which shows how infuriated the raven was. I don`t think the hawk had a clue what all the fuss was about..

    Perfect entry for the challenge...We don't see people break dancing either in our part of the country any time of the year.. but nature provides us with wonderful opportunities and this really shows action and movement very well...
