    Here are a few recent super macho bird shots, compared to the feeble raptors Coastalconn posted yesterday. These birds would eat George Jefferson Jr. alive. :76::boggled::biglaugh:

    Of course they are protected by Wile E Coyote Sr.

    Great set.
    Shot number 1 he looks a little timid. Maybe he's afraid that one of those pterodactyls is coming to get him.

    Thank you guys. It's those terrifying talons in #4 that does it :) It was just about to grab a Hyena; memory card was full after that shot. It really did happen because I keep both eyes open :cool-98:

    Nice work JR! Those talons do look quite terrifying! I really like #5.. Those poor puppies get such a bad rap.. Great Horned Owls do way more damage to domestics but they never get the blame..

    I was impressed and shocked to hear what GHO's are capable/responsible of.

    Once I saw that GHO are the only natural predator to a skunk it was all over. They may be cute and all, but they are vicious killers...
