My contribution for this week’s challenge…
Okavango Delta waters for its lunch.
There are many images of this
white crowned shrike
sitting, flying or landing,
on the Internet.
However, I could not find one with the bird balanced
as precariously as this as it took to flight.
This African Harrier Hawk seemed to be checking
his feet were not attached to its perch…
before launching into flight.
While the above photos were unlikely occurrences
to capture they were the result
of holding down the shutter button in anticipation.
This last photo is much closer to home.
Our back yard in fact about two weeks ago.
I have never seen a bird of prey
kill another bird before.
