That's a lovely dinner it's caught there. Good. He hasn't got stuck in yet though I see; his face is still nice and white (if indeed it is a he, probably a she). Smile

Blood on snow creates a very particular sense of the drama that has unfolded. Brilliant.

Another great shot Ron. I think the colour balance here is excellent. The lack of remains just shows how thoroughly an animal finishes its prey when catching it is hard work, but also where there is only one top predator.

Ron, as you know I do admire your photos and I respect your opinion that you like it warmer, but for me I prefer it to be a bit cooler, which is my experience there. Of course it could be my monitor although I have regularly "colormunkied" it. I agree it is a warm colour when the sun is low of course, however each to his own, it is still a great photo. Ken
