eye of the raptor, 2 photos

The eye of a raptor gleams with its dominance of the skies.
This is an immature Accipiter, most likely a Cooper’s hawk.
It soon got tired of the crows that were pestering it.
The hawk exploded off its perch, twisting through the trees towards the noisy pests.
The crows scattered all over the small cove.
