Guardian

I was walking to the car after photographing birds for 4 hours, thinking I was done for the day when I happened upon this beautiful hawk sitting on the ground guarding it's lunch. Sadly, it had a difficult time trying to pick up its prey and carrying it while trying to get lift to fly and it dropped the fresh kill in the nearby lake, circling back looking for it but not finding it.
