Another great Natural History shot Kristine. Well seen and captured. I too have tried my hand at taking bird pictures and a shot like this may be the result of many hours of patience and hundreds of 'nearly' shots. Well done, Herb

It was indeed sad to watch and I wish I could have interfered, but we have to let nature take it's own way. Thanks a lot, Nawitka!
