Description: Pale Chanting Goshawk a millisecond before mating

Story from behind the lens: Johnson spotted a female Pale Chanting Goshawk sitting beautifully on a branch. I started to take some shots and a male entered the picture and they mated. I captured the whole process. In the shot right after this one, they were mating, but you couldn't see the female as well. Her head was bowed/hidden. This shot captured them both so beautifully.
