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.
