    Sunday morning doing my usual and Crows start making a comotion. I know that sound and grab the machine gun running out to the front to catch this

    I missed the flight hit but got the coup de grace

    the crows were buzzing him so much he dropped his breakfast but kept a close watch

    then he swooped down, gave me one last look and photo op

    In a flash he was gone with his catch and all I had was a butt shot, I'll spare you folks that one :biggrin:

    Super shots, Ben. You make a good case for having a camera ready to go by the front door at all times!

  11. Very nice images Ben. I have always wanted to see a hawk take out a crow but thus far have never seen it happen.
