Fantastic shot Jason. He's really got his eye on you. I like his trousers. #226132

Excellent shot. Nature is graphic, though some people seem to forget that. A raptor story - a friend of mine has a Lhasa Apso. When the dog was about 6 months old, they let it out the back door to do its business before bedtime. Almost immediately they heard a horrible screeching and yelping from the dog, and ran out. Whereupon the dog (Teddy) dropped out of the sky and onto their deck with a big plunk. He lived, but had talon puncture wounds on his back where the great horned owl had grabbed him. They got outside quick enough to startle the owl before it got any higher. Teddy refused to go outside alone for several months thereafter...! #1186897
