Nice shot Herb, sad about the closure.
Maybe my screen? not sure, but there seems some real blue highlights markings in the wings.

Neat shot Herb. Guess the bird will use the insect as a toothpick (or beakpick).

Who knew?!! A wee appetizer! That's why we're out there. Nicely captured. There is also a green cast to the photo as well as the blue. Don

Great get, Herb; and an excellent photograph.
A few bad days of hunting, and a back-up food source is always nice to have.
I imagine even the best "pure" hunters do that on occasion, maybe even a peregrine eating road kill.

Super photo Herb. I'd expect this from a kestrel.

How do you close a huge marsh? There are many ways in beside the gate
