I've been after this moment for over 2.5 years. Most of the time the action happened too fast and too far away. Today with the combination of a short distant, good light, good presentation of both bird and prey I was able to make this image. As with any wildlife photograph, more or less, luck is always involved, and today for some reason this guy decided to play with his food for a good 3 minutes, and that is an eternity. Thanks for viewing, commenting and voting.
