Flying with the Hawks

Alright. This is neither build nor rant.

Today it was fairly windy again. Great for soaring. I was outside flying my scratchbuilt 20" KESL wing to see how she performed. I had been flying for about 15 mins when I noticed a hawk overhead soaring in the breeze making lazy circles. So I circled around towards the hawk to see what it would do. It seemd to be curious but not threatened so it kindof stayed close to the wing but followed behind it. I thought that was cool but then I noticed two more coming over to have a look. Soon there were 3 hawks circling overhead slowly but clearly interested in my wing. After a few minutes the wind picked up and I decided to bring the wing in while it was still possible. The hawks left shortly after.
