This spotted let me get pretty close and record several beetle catches it made while having lunch. Very interesting to watch it go to the lake and wash each one before eating.

Thanks for the kind words. I was trying to get a shot of the washing but my placement was such that every time it went and washed the beetles, the grass was just tall enough I could not see the bug in it's mouth. :lol:

Thank you so much. I was bummed since I was trying to get drumming grouse that morning but they never showed up.

Looks to be quite the "beetler" I'd say!
Fascinating set that's also very nicely executed. The differential lighting certainly highlights the catch and the front of the bird very well. Is that a sandbar it's walking on in the 3rd image?
