Short-tailed Vole swallowing













a swallowing sequence -- after it gobbled this one down it turned round listening and then flew all of 4m before dropping down to catch another vole that it took off to its larder -- I keep saying I will not go again but who knows when there will be another opportunity like this one? all taken after the sun set for the day but I think that sunshine is not always the best light for owls even diurnal ones --
for people who have asked all pics taken with Canon 1D4 and Canon 500 f4 on manual metering and hand held on a Gitzo monopod between 500ISO and 800ISO
