Great picture,if a little gruesome!
What a pity that the natural order of life requires the sacrifice of the weaker.

Which capture do you mean Mark the photo or the dead bird? Not keen on the subject myself but I realise its part and parcel of the animal food chain, they cant go to Tesco or Asda can they.

Time you did some weeding Joe!

Just one bird I think Margaret, it's the whole of the dead birds right wing folded back which gives you that impression.

That is so sad!

As a lover of Raptors...l think this picture is stunning.
This bird is in excellent health and is obviously capable of tackling prey almost its own size.
A well deserved prize.

This type of photo is absolutley brilliant. Have a pair of sparrow hawks come through my garden on a regular run, I tend to find there meals a little later....! Nature natural as it should be. Excellent photo.
