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.

Great shots Alan (but I would be surprised if they were not)!
Shooting from reasonable distances/conditions delivers (off course!) the best photo results. Otherwise it's more documentation of the event (not because it doesn't have it's own place in photography!). Well... on other side if one day I succeed to document (no Photoshop!!!)  the Loch Ness bastard in reasonable quality pic it will diminish all my other phgotos ;D!!!

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.

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.

That’s what makes it interesting, but the “rules” are flexible since it is for fun, if an eagle has a catfish with whiskers we don’t push for species ID, catfish is acceptable.  Sparrows with larvae worms makes it very interesting.
