Marcus... I'm sure you must become a blade of grass to get these brilliant works...:)

The detail, power and action is wonderful... the tail twisting to keep control of position, talons outstretched, ready to lock on target... Head down, eyes judging distance...:)

Excellent as always Sir...:)

Huge congratulations on a most deserved BiP award...:)

Hi Marcus,
Another lovely action shot. Your about reminds me of the time I was golfing and we watched a large hawk try to fly away with a ground hog. The ground hog was very heavy for him and he kept dropping it from about six feet in the air. The ground hog kept running away and the hawk kept catching it and picking it up again. Someone told me afterwards that the hawk might have been dropping him on purposr to try and kill him. I've seen Gulls drop shells on purpose to get crabs and clams out of them, so I guess anything is possible.
