Fence Line Security

Karen  Moore

Lehigh Acres, United States

Artist's Description

A Crested Cara Cara is a member of the Falcon family. Cara Cara’s will feed on small snakes, lizards and other small prey but their main diet is carrion. Often found like you see in this photo on the fence line over looking the highway for any fallen prey. These birds live in a concentrated area of the United State in Central Florida and virtually unknown outside the interior of south and central Florida. I have tried for many years now to capture one of these cool looking birds, although seen many times, often out of reach of my 300mm lens.

This is my all time favorite shot because it took me 3 long years to get.
