Watched this Kingbird try to eat this giant butterfly for a few minutes.

Everytime the bird would try to swallow the bug it would fly away and he would re catch it. This went on for about three tries. The fourth time a different Kingbird flew up and stole it.

Haha - chewing off more than it could handle, eh? And then ended up losing it to another kingbird that knew how to eat something that large...

Nice shot, by the way. Setting sun giving the warm coloration?

Yes it was kind of fun to watch. Correct the sun was starting to set on this one.
