SCORE KEEPER?

---
As I was shooting the semi-final and Championship games of the Carpenter Cup (high school baseball tournament), this hawk claimed the giant scoreboard at Citizens Bank Park (Phillies' stadium) for his own for much of the time, successfully fighting off all challenges from other birds.

What is so wonderful about this shot is you think it is purely EOD and then you see that hawk. Fabulous shot, Michelle!

HEY NEIGHBOR Now just spotting this at a ball game would be an impressive feat but getting a catch VERY NICE . Guess would be he finds the LOCAL PIGEONS rather TASTY MEALS and it would be almost impossible to top that perch.

Great shot Michelle, the hawk looks so tiny compared to the lights! They must show up his evening meal! Wonderful find!

What a great photo op, Michelle! I probably wouldn't have even noticed the hawk! You have a great eye! Cool capture and a neat looking sky too! By the way, one of the lightbulbs needs to be changed! Ha! Ha! :)

Note: The lights were not lit, but I lit them with a pale yellow soft brush. I left one unlit so it would look more natural.

Before I opened it or read any thing I thought it was a wine rack.
