Never thought much about frame rate until I ran across these two. All Hail the mighty kx.

Some very cool shots. Especially #3 where you can see some expression from the one on its back with talons extended.

Really a fine action sequence. I've a lot of red-tailed hawk photos, but haven't come across such a scene yet.

I'm not sure what's driving them, but they're both juveniles (from the bands under the tail; if you had a clear over-the-tail view, a juvenile would have a brownish, as opposed to red, tail).

Or if you familiar with red-tails, I apology for saying anything obvious.

Great captures indeed! Quite rare action to shoot, I suppose.
