Cedar waxwing with a dragonfly in mouth.

I'm trying to promote a local photo competition with animals feeding to be Called the "Disney circle of life award". The award can be given to multiple recipients and is influenced by identification of predator and prey, as well as the usual photographic criteria.

I would not normally take shots of captive birds. But, these were from the Raptor Foundation where they are well looked after. I couldn't resist posting these as they look like characters from Japanese woodcuts of Kabuki actors.

Excellent shot applecider!
Concerning your promotion - sometimes you see just legs or/and wings of the insects (prey I hope :)) and the identification is practically impossible.
