Fine image, very precise moment captured beautifully...the bird with prey, amazing. tfs.

Great capture (poor mouse). It took me a while to understand what was happening - try lightening the area around the beak and head of the poor animal a little to make it more obvious.

Bonjour Jose,
Une autre image de ta série de juillet.. pauvre souris! L'angle de vue choisi est vraiment intéressant. Et l'arričre-plan (probablement un bâtiment) donne un parfait contraste de couleur.
Bonne fin de semaine
