[va-bird] Mayhem at Huntley

I witnessed a strange occurence at Huntley Meadows this morning that 
appeared to be a Fish Crow attacking a male Mallard. It's possible that 
this was accidental, but I'm don't know.

The first eight images in my Huntley gallery show the sequence of shots I 
took. Since this was done with a manually focused 500mm lens, they are 
not the sharpest pictures I have take, but the quality is not that bad. I 
was photographing the Fish Crow because it had a stick in its bill, and I 
noticed there was an interaction between the crow and the duck, but it 
wasn't until I got the pictures on my computer that I realized the full 
impact.
