Take Away For One Please!

By CanonAndy22
Thanks to everyone for their kind votes & comments on my previous oyster catcher post, & a special thank you to JuBarney for their UA (my first Smile).

This was captured a good few years ago, when I'd just switched to digital from my trusty EOS 3 film camera.
I'd forgotten about this photo to be honest, and recently found it again when going through my older LR catalogues.
This Common Buzzard captured near Rhayader, in Wales, had been watching its "lunch" from a nearby hedgerow, then I saw him (or her?) pounce - on an unfortunate vole / mouse couldn't tell which! I did manage to get some shots of it feeding, but this was the one I considered to be the best. Hope you all like it?
