#naturephotochallenge Day 4 of five day challenge ~Predator on a Powerline~ Hawk high above his prey on the powerline in the cold midmoring air, watching and waiting for the perfect time to strike. Ice clings to the transformer protector as the cold north wind blows ever so slightly. Neither seem to distract the hawk's gaze from wavering from his intended prey.

Remembering Martin Luther King Jr. in Photos - 37 photos - http://goo.gl/YbimuL - Today, in the United States, we observe Martin Luther King Day, a federal holiday established in 1986 to honor the slain civil rights leader and his accomplishments. In the 1950s and 60s, King grew into a powerful speaker and promoter of nonviolent resistance to unjust laws, inspiring thousands to protest the injustices of segregation and fight these laws in the courts.
