    Default The Feast

    Iíve found a spot near a river that has sinkholes. About every three weeks or so a large animal trying to drink at the river there will become caught and, eventually, provide a feast to various types of carnivores. In this instance, I was viewing from a hill on the opposite side of the river. I was continuously watched but apparently judged to not be an immediate threat.

    Thank you. Nature has a way of redistributing resources. It takes about 3-4 days for and elk carcus to disappear and 4-6 days for a buffalo. Everything but the skin, even the bones, will be eaten.

    A sad ending for one life, but a real bounty for many others who have to eat too. I'm sure that predator/scavenger saw many hungry days and nights over the long, cold winter. Must have felt like one lucky day when she came upon that carcass. Great captures, E.B.

    Thank you. It's a drama that occurs daily in nature though we tend to overlook it.

    Thank you. It's a less common type of wildlife capture.

    Thank you. I'm not really looking for any wildlife images. They just seem to be there as I wander around looking for landscapes.
