    Yes, so good that an Angel flew down and took him straight away for his just rewards. (Probably in a nice burgundy laced stew...):eek:

    I saw a hawk fly off with something the other day, the most chilling thing about it was that whatever it was wasn't even dead yet. Nature is no walk in the park.

    Looks like a clean pick. I live on a hill and there's a pond below me. Great view. I watched a turtle swim across the pond through binoculars when a hawk plucked him out of the water. Everyone has to eat.

    Holy Cow!
    Yeah, Raptors will pickup things alive and I think even snack on them in mid flight.

    Yup... the Buzzards round here are sometimes seen with a bunny in their talons, especially in the Spring when the young ones first venture out of their burrow. Life's tough and nature's red in tooth and claw.

    I had the great pleasure of seeing bald eagles fishing when I lived in beautiful British Columbia.
    I lived in Prince George and Quesnel, BC and I went trout fishing often.
    The eagles were way more successful than I was.
    Great memories!

    We get skunks out here in the wilds of silicon valley. Few years ago I spied a small pile of skunk chunks on the neighbor's driveway. Turns out great horned owls are about the only other animal that attempts to use skunks as prey.

    Guess I should add "successfully" since the average dog seems to try, repeatedly.

    I once saw a large bird swoop down and pluck a snake out of a river. The snake must have retaliated because as the two were about tree top level, the bird let the snake loose... and he dropped -splat- on the ground and was instantly dead. The bird just flew off into the distance.

    For some reason I'm reminded of this.

    Great photo! I've watched an owl grab a chipmunk from my backyard and a golden eagle grab a trout from a river. It's an amazing site. Years ago I saw a documentary on birds of prey that discussed the aerodynamics of these predators swooping down to grab a meal. At the time it was stated that science and engineering had yet to sufficiently explain how these birds can go from flying/gliding velocities to an almost dead stop when they grab the prey and then beat their wings enough to regain "take off velocity" to take reverse course and ascend to flight again. Fascinating stuff. ;)

    I'll refrain from saying what this instantly reminds me of due to not wanting to break forum rules. But that is one cool picture.
