Roy Mangersnes - The game is on

The power and grace of the hunting raptor has always been fascinating to me. When I saw this Northern Goshawk chasing crows my heart started thumping. I managed to get into position without causing to much disturbance and waited for the right moment. When the hawk came in, low above the ground, I managed to track it quit early and stayed on him for a while before starting to take pictures. As the shutter was hammering it was hard to keep up, and I actually didn’t see the crow before looking at the display afterwards. All the shots were pretty sharp but this one had a nice synchrony to it. The crow got away, this time…
