Broken Leg

Broken Leg - Coopers Hawk

While photographing this hawk, I noticed it had an injury to its left left leg. As it perched it hung limp. I expect she'll eventually succumb to starvation. I'm reminded just how cold and cruel nature can be. She continues and hunt as I witness her take a vole, but it's only a matter of time.

Nice shot and a sad story... I expect you're right, nature can be hard and it's literally survival of the fittest...
