Raptors and their Prey

Our trip to the Kalaghadi provided an opportunity to observe Lanner Falcons and other raptors hunting down Namaqua Doves.  This occurred at most waterholes and it was fascinating to see how successful they were.  During on short spell at the Nossob waterhole we saw no less that 5 kills by the falcons.  The photos below show some of the action.
