    This was taken last week on an overcast morning, the female was cleaning the pigeon mid-air to bring to one of the fledges.

    Thanks for looking.

    Nice view of the prey. Like the highkey treatment here. The overcast light helped with that. Neat behavior as well.

  3. Thanks Tim Foltz thanked for this post

    Tim: Wow...great image capturing that behaviour. Could you have stopped down a stop or two to get more d.o.f, as it looks a little soft to me.

    Neat behavior. Bad luck that the bird was not cleaning the near-side of the prey ...
