Shrike vs the vole - Dec 13 2013

Northern Shrike. 
On my drive home I saw this beautiful shrike sitting on a branch.
 Opened window and started to take photos.

Flew across the road

Dived into the snow and came up with a vole
but take a look at next shot.

Is it my eyes are is the vole fighting back?????????
He did finally lose and the shrike flew off to an old barn.

  1. Those are amazing! I don't remember ever seeing one, certainly not eye to eye with a vole!
