One day as I was leaving Viera Wetlands I noticed a few vehicles parked near the wetlands entrance and a number of photographers gathered nearby crouched behind some big glass. Sidelining the car I joined the small crowd photographing a crested caracara as it fed on a bird. But before I could get into position another cara cara flew by. Taking advantage of the situation I panned with the bird capturing the above image.
Tearing off pieces by holding one part with its feet while pulling with its massive beak
This image was captured as the caracara finished swallowing a rather large piece
