When an owl lands in front of you!!
Right place right time, and all those hours of hanging around can pay off!
Very lucky for us photographers, and this Hawk owl to have such a treat. This is not a lion killing a wildebeest, but almost as cool to see. Our owl flew down into the ditch within 12 feet of our cameras, and did his thing to help him survive the cold winter.
We could see and hear the vole struggling to get away, but in the end, it was carried off to the nearby woods to be stored for a future meal.
Amazing and real nature, never baited., and you can clearly see why I will never bait.
