After having an average day (which then turned wild-literally!) I sat down on the couch to watch an episode of Skins. Not long through it I heard this horrific noise. It was deafening and so high pitched. I didn't take any notice of it until it carried on for about a minute.
As I got up to look out the window, I see this scenario. It was like what you'd imagine a lion hunting a zebra, but on a hugely smaller scale (obviously!). I ran to get my camera, had to quickly sift through my suit case to find the zoom lens, did a lens change super quickly and started snapping.
The whole time I felt guilty.
But here was nature on it's course, in broad daylight which wasn't ideal. Then as I got thinking, this is how these animals survive.
And by the way this animal in particular carried it's prey off in it's mouth, one can only assume that it had a family to feed.
So I am now warning you, this is nature on it's course, but is kinda yuck at the same time.
Note: In order to become a great photographer, I feel one has to take opportunities like these, even though the subject may not be too pleasant. Lets hope it's a one off yeah?
Are you ready??
Editing will be done with these photos at some stage. If you don't understand, there was a flock of crows. The fox pounced on one and the other 20 or so crows started squawking and squawking, which by the way is fair enough-it was their defense mechinism. The fox went to let go of the crow but then decided against it and just kept chewing and throwing it around until it was dead.
