You're welcome Art!
Oh Yeah... I had a red tail do the same with a mallard hen a few years ago, but he was to far off for a good close up shot like yours! It's neat what we get to see when out an about in the wilds!

:iconwyld-art-photography:
For sure George, when I was watching the snowy a few days ago a little mink popped up about 2 feet from me from under some rocks,,,lol,,,looked at me and went about his biz,,hehe,,I had to wait till he got farther away from me for a photo,,,lol

I didn't know they would take a duck . Was the duck injured already & therefore easy pickings or is this more common than I know ?
Reply
:iconwyld-art-photography:
I knew they were capable of hunting duck, it was my first time seeing it. They have quite a variety of food on their list.
