    :cool2: Ok, so a deer didnt eat his necessary grasses and he died... becoming part of the grass when spring comes. Along comes a bird: a creature who usually eats seeds and grasses, but in winter munches on the deer cause he needs the nourishment, and so he's feeding on meat.

    Out of the blue, a fox comes along for a little dinner-on-the-wing. Sounds good enough... he cant fly, and on the ground a bird is a tasty treat especially with venison ice cream for dessert.

    Lo and behold, that very "bird eater": mister fox, had no idea that he is gonna fly some day soon too. And to help illustrate how, just look at the picture.

    Great post. Reminds me of what I saw on the news yesterday. A kid was walking his weiner dog when all of a sudden a hawk swooped in to carry the dog away. The kid beat the crap out of the bird and took his dog back.

    Either the poor little fox couldn't run cause his front paws were missing or this was a nice bit of graphic work, LOL!!! Where are his paws???

    At first I thought great pic but upon further review I believe it to be a doctored photo!:eek:oooh:

    That is still a good pic even if it has been doctored. Thanks for sharing it.

    I really do not think this is a doctored photo- In the original that I recieved in email, it was a bitmap- a BMP file. So I blew it way up and looked for signs of tampering and could not find any.
    The front paws of the fox are in the snow. It is awful hard to put a snow spray so well placed near the tail of the Eagle, and along the wing without it looking fake or doctored.

    I think the photographer was just inthe right place at the right moment.


    If ya pm an email address to me I will send the original Bitmap to you. Then you can check it out for yourself... or take my word for it.
