Photo-a-Day (Sunday, 15th November, 2009)
Great picture,if a little gruesome!
What a pity that the natural order of life requires the sacrifice of the weaker.
Oh yes,, Great.
Wow! Superb shot!
We're all part of the big re-cycle scheme!
Which capture do you mean Mark the photo or the dead bird? Not keen on the subject myself but I realise its part and parcel of the animal food chain, they cant go to Tesco or Asda can they.
Am I seeing things , or are there 2 dead birds there on the floor . as they say THATS LIFE great picture
Time you did some weeding Joe!
Just one bird I think Margaret, it's the whole of the dead birds right wing folded back which gives you that impression.
i am a canary breeder , a sparrow hawk like this one as killed lots of my birds over the year , they fly at terific speed onto my outside flight , the canary goes into shock , bingo ,, its dinner time , when you put food on the table , its their to be eaten,,
That is so sad!
As a lover of Raptors...l think this picture is stunning.
This bird is in excellent health and is obviously capable of tackling prey almost its own size.
A well deserved prize.
Im so sorry alan hopefully it won't happen again .
This type of photo is absolutley brilliant. Have a pair of sparrow hawks come through my garden on a regular run, I tend to find there meals a little later....! Nature natural as it should be. Excellent photo.
