I've always had an affinity for apex predators. I'm trying to live my life not killing or eating one of them, on purpose - but I do think it is immensely cool to watch apex predators in action. On a hike in the Phoenix Mountains last January, I watched with amazement as a pair of falcons defended their nest against a young interloping male. My friend Jason captured this amazing picture of a red tail hawk at a cliff he camped near last weekend on the Mogollon Rim - me thinks the Hawk was making sure the large nearly hairless ape above his nest was not going to molest the avian homestead by the look in the eye of the hawk.
I hear that the movie Earth follows apex predator cats and bears as well - which I am sure Dr Desert Flower and I will go see sometime soon - I just don't want to listen to other peoples' screaming children in a theater.
