We became alerted to the presence of this rare bird (gray-bellied hawk, "Accipiter poliogaster") when the bird it was chasing flew into the dining area at Shiripuno Lodge. I don't often take multiple shots in rapid succession, but I'm glad I did this time. If I had waited for the bird to assume this pose, I most certainly would not have captured this image. The hawk was identified by Fernando, Director, and Randy, naturalist guide of the Lodge. Yasuni Biosphere Reserve, Ecuador ("Noir" filter used).
