Hawk at Holyoke’s post office [photo]

I was driving on Dwight Street yesterday afternoon when I saw one of the downtown hawks land at the top of the flagpole on Holyoke’s main post office branch.

Even though I only had a 50mm lens with me, I dutifully pulled over to snap a few shots. Getting out of the car, I noticed that a kid and his father walking on the sidewalk across the street had the same idea: they were both staring up at the hawk, taking photos with a cell phone.

The hawk only stayed a few moments; when it flew away, I looked across the street to find the kid absolutely beaming.
