Photographer Phoo Chan captured this perfect sequence of a Northern Harrier tossing prey to one of its baby chick hawks in midair. It’s an amazing display of coordination, like a little game of pitch and catch between a dad and his kid. You can see the adult hawk drop the prey and then watch the offspring catch it, as if to critique his form. Remember, soft talons!
