He was hunting form a horizontal branch only about two-three meters above ground level and then swooped down. I managed to get two frames before it hit the ground and the Vole. This was the second hunting.

Love the vertical pose- you're getting such great shots in all sorts of poses. Like this one for it's unique angle.

Amazing angle, Karl! When I first had a quick look at the thumbnail I thought you had photographed a Bat! Wonderful behaviour capture.
