I love birds of prey. Hawks, Eagles and Owls are just cool to me. I look for them when I drive down the highway. Someday I am going to own a nice camera with a powerful zoom lens so I can photograph them without spooking them. It is difficult to get close to them. This video is about a close encounter with a hawk who is in a life and death struggle with a bull snake ... and the snake was winning.
