Life and consciousness after 'death' - at least for a very short while.

Two remarkable examples of Jaguar predation (a mature 5 metre + Black caiman would certainly be the predator rather than prey but still this is the biggest Yacare caiman ever seen taken by the big cat).

I've been meaning for ages to record and upload images of Red Kites where I live.

They are prolific where I live- and not a day goes go by, where I don't see these raptors gliding and swooping to the ground in search of prey. :smilin:

Thanks Keys. :smilin:

I remember first seeing Red Kites in 2005 when I moved to the current area near to where I'm living now.

I was fascinated by them, as I had never seen a bird of prey up close before.

I really hope that you post some pics on here - would be great to see them, birds of prey really are such incredible flying machines. :cuppaT: :smilin:
