Jackdaw catching prey

Emanuel Högberg (Borås, Sweden) on 30 April 2011 in Animal & Insect.

The first of a three to four image series with this lovely jackdaw. Not fearful of me at all, allowing me to take a few closeups with my cheap tamron zoom.

Canon EOS 500D 1/200 second F/5.6 ISO 100 300 mm

All comments are very much appreciated, good or bad, though I might not answer each and every one I'll take a look at your photoblog if you have one. It's always nice to be inspired by others, so let me know what you think :)
