Hostile take-over by LinRuPhotography Hostile take-over by LinRuPhotography
We were shooting the thousands of doves at the Cubitje Quap waterhole in the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, South Africa, when this lanner falcon struck gold by catching one. I was busy shooting the lanner ripping the dove to peaces in seconds, when the Goshawk suddenly appeared in my viewfinder... Yip, the downside of fixed focals (not that I would have had the chance to adjust a zoom...)
