I always try to stop when barrelling down the road and I see a familiar raptor, one that I have heaps of shots of, because there's often a surprise still to be had.
This guy was hovering over the shoulder for a while and then dropped and rose half a minute later from the long grass.

It got some grass with its mouse.
