This one took off from near where I was waiting, nailed the mouse about 150 feet away, then came 1/2 way back to feast using the top of a pipe for a dinner table.

Cheers

Great shots! I never realized they ate the whole thing, thought they just picked the meat off the bones.

Very sharp images here Gene. Can I assume you used the 500mm on these? I love getting shots of raptors doing what they do best. Good work.
