The perfect timing! Superb shot!
Aaaa ... ! very nice action shot!
Great Shot, , ,
I was fortunate enough to catch a glimpse of one in the same park, but only a glimpse. Our driver was hot on the tail of a pride of lions with cubs... special, definitely, but I wish we'd had a minute to stop and look
Amazing shot, just a brilliant photo.
fantastic shot absolutely stunning
Wow - what a shot (green eyed envy)
Thanks for sharing !! lovely bird.
Emma, in the exact moment of the shoot the bird is not hunting. He had taken the insect "scarab" on the ground and then he brought it on the branch to kill him beating him. This is the final part of the hunting: the insect is dead and the bird throws it into his bill.
Do you know if he caught the insect?
Great timing and pose...Must add in Best Wildlife contest.
great colors on that bird!
