Default Mid-air attempted mugging (5)

Caught this little skirmish between a short-eared owl and a female northern harrier over nearby meadow yesterday. The light was horrid, and the action took place a good 200 yards away, so these aren't very good shots, but they do show the action rather well. It seems the owl had caught a vole, and the harrier wanted it. After a brief scuffle, the harrier wound up with the prize, but the owl returned to try to take it back. In the end, neither of them got supper, as the vole got dropped and the two combatants went their separate ways...


Out where the rivers like to run, I stand alone, and take back something worth remembering...
