When I first spotted this handsome raptor, he was balancing on the power line leading to my house, with a small bird in his talons.
By the time I ran to get my camera, he was just ready to fly away.
Does anyone know his species?

Those PhD (Push here Dummy) cameras can surprise us with the results. They’re a far cry from the Kodak Brownies.
Several years ago I was watching a bird coming towards my window. As you know with the expansive view I get lots of bird sightings….crows, gulls etc. But this one was different and as it got closer I realized it was a bald eagle! It sailed right past my window. I was so in awe that I didn’t even think of grabbing a camera…although mine now lives here on the table.
Sorry, I can’t help with the identification.
Great shot, Yvonne!
Thank you, Fausto, I was so lucky, wasn’t I?
That’s a beautiful photo!
