Well almost.

Continuing on from this thread here : http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/1130179

Please read the introduction and information in the link above for details of these amazing, wonderful tiny birds.

Having enjoyed a number of dragonflies (and a small bird the day before I heard) this time one of the parents caught a butterfly and then proceeded to sit on the bough and call the fledgling in to share in the errr umm 'feast' ?

1. Where IS that Fledgling ?


2. Dinner Time !


3. Don't Grab !


4. Now You've Torn It !


5. Tug-O-War


6. Come Back to the Table !


7. Two Wings


8. Mum (Mom) .. I dropped it !


9. Where'd it go ?


10. Share a Wing


11. That Tog is still there Mum !


12. On Your Marks .....


13. Cough, Splutter, Hack ....


14. Arrivederci !

Great set of these awesome falcons, Thanks for sharing. I would watch over sharpening of the head. Some of these have speckley or noisy faces.

An amazing raptor on the perfect perch with this type of interaction it doesn't get much better than that. Love this set.

Thanks Chris ! Really lucky with the BG. The bough was maybe 20-25m away but on the banks of a river with the forest that you can actually see in the BG maybe a 150-200m away so blurred beautifully !

Great action series of photos and the BK is perfect. We have the Pygmy Falcon in the drier Western part of South Africa, for size comparison here is photo I took in the Kalahari in 2010. The thorns are about 1 inch long.
