Goshawk killing Grey Heron

Goshawk (Accipiter gentilis) killing Grey Heron (Ardea cinerea), Zoo Leipzig, Sachsen, Germany.

 

Last shot and serial shots. Look also at the first shot.

 

Wildlife shot!! It was taken in the Zoo aera, but they are not captive animals!!

Nothing for sentimental minds!!

 

In the thick of the crowd a juvenile goshawk, due to size probably a female, hunted for a grey heron. A heron seemed to be a little bit out of the league of a goshawk! From about 15 m both dropped down. The rest is pure nature and pure brutality and bloodiness!!! So, please, be aware of this!
