Feeding on a fence post following a long trip North. I won't attempt to interpret this raptor's words following it's flight and my intrusion on it's table (well, maybe just a bit):


Two (clearly the imposition is strong and the bird is not pleased)



Three (okay, the raptor promises, I'll do a profile if you will leave and let me eat after you get your paparazzi)



Four (to heck with this, I'm eating, shoot all you want you moron, I'm hungry)



Cheers! Thanks for taking the time!

killer shots norm. any idea what bird that hawk is munching on? a woody perhaps? good thing it seems more preoccupied with its meal than you. great opportunity for close up shots like this.

Beauties Norm. What a great opportunity seeing this. Is it feeding on a Woodpecker maybe? All that white underbelly looks like that perhaps...cheers..Don

Hi Hung, thanks for the input and always pleased when you say that you enjoy one of my shots. The "victim" here was a Kingbird (another one of my favorite subjects...perhaps perched on a post or tree rather than here, though :lol: ) I was driving home from a "bust" evening of photography, so it was a pleasure to discover this creature perhaps picking up a first feeding following a long long journey North :G
