The Internet is Freaking Out Over Photoshopping This Badass Hawk
We've had a lot of really good Photoshop battles this year but this badass hawk may end up being the absolute best. It all started when Clint Ralph, a 53-year-old animal enthusiast was visiting Giant's Castle in Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Africa with his son intending to photograph the Bearded Vulture when a spotted jackal hawk caught their eyes instead. The epic predator was hunting and Clint nabbed this opportunistic photo as the bird headed towards a carcass. Clint uploaded the photo to the Internet without thinking much of it. He says that he "loved the attitude and comedy of the shot," and as he told the Metro, "I knew it would capture the imagination of the public." Indeed it did, Clint's photo sparked one of the year's best Photoshop battles and we couldn't be more thrilled to share the 14 best images produced from this epic bird!
