I was shooting at a departing hawk after taking several still shots. While looking through the viewfinder I saw a bird dart out at the hawk. I wasn't sure what I got till I went home and downloaded & edited. 

 

A red-winged blackbird, threatened by the hawks presence, did a defensive attack that looked to me in the photo to be 'Hitching a ride'...

Thanks! Very lucky the blackbird jumped in, was a red-winged one, and I clicked when I did. Believe me, it wasn't that I saw it at that second..

I see swans all the time, but rarely see them flying. Typical behavior is drifting, sleeping and eating. I was out yesterday and got quite a few shot of them in attack mode..
