    Great capture. Well at least on your part. 🙂 The timing was fantastic. There is so much emotion in this single shot.

    Wow, a stunning shot! It’s only been here on google+ that I’m starting to see this “secret life of birds” … a moment frozen and captured by great photography like this.

    Whohoho, no it looks like it holds the other ones leg in its little claws. Now what is the chance of that. Major achievement there, Rick, i.m.o.

    Thanks Diane. Over so fast I almost didn’t see it happen.

  • Ludo on Jungle Dragon said:

    Yes, I do believe that. They don’t tend to wait till you pressed the button:) A welcome bonus that must have been, coming out this sharp.
