A great diagonal flight position, Scott, and the lunch takes it up a notch. Well done!

A beautiful head on flight capture of my favourite little raptor with prey! Lovely image, Scott!

Great catch Scott. This image is even better after clicking on it. I love the action and wonderful background.

Great shot, love everything about it, the position of the bird, the background, and the catch makes it even better.
