Default World's Smallest Raptor & The Butterfly - Pied Falconets Part 2

Well almost.

Continuing on from this thread here : http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/1130179

Please read the introduction and information in the link above for details of these amazing, wonderful tiny birds.

Having enjoyed a number of dragonflies (and a small bird the day before I heard) this time one of the parents caught a butterfly and then proceeded to sit on the bough and call the fledgling in to share in the errr umm 'feast' ?

1. Where IS that Fledgling ?


2. Dinner Time !


3. Don't Grab !


4. Now You've Torn It !


5. Tug-O-War


6. Come Back to the Table !


7. Two Wings


8. Mum (Mom) .. I dropped it !


9. Where'd it go ?


10. Share a Wing


11. That Tog is still there Mum !
