      Masterful capture gives a rare glimpse of this life and death drama. The falcon has part of the pheasant's long tail feather train in his talons. Perhaps that is the falcon's way, or perhaps he missed slightly. Either way, I'd guess the pheasant's time is drawing to a close.

      'Beautiful collection of work in your photostream.

      Fantastic shots in this series!
      The pheasant is probably bigger and heavier than the Gyrfalcon... Greedy beast!
