silent death...resting

many hours during many days I parked the car near a meadow with plenty of poles hoping he would come and pose for me once...
he gave me 6 photo's before he took off again...hunting mice.
watch the difference in the eye pupil sun/shade side...

    Amazingly beautiful !!!
    Top wildlife shot in a well composed way !
    Very interesting to see the pupil difference.
    Must have been a very excited moment, I know that feeling very well.
    How lucky you could shoot him out of a heated car. What a luxury.....
