Out and about.

#1 Post by Nath » Fri Jun 03, 2016 3:05 pm

Needed rabbits.
Managed a couple of long shots too.
One at 212paces.

Bumped into a cub.

Last week I dug the Bess out of hibernation.

Hope you like the photos.

How about this?

A blue tit.
It feeds it young on grubs that feed on oak leaf.
Oak leaf becomes toxic to blue tit.
How does it cope with its toxic food?
It starts removing the gut of the grub which contains the toxins and then feeds them to its young. You can see the dismembered grub in the photo.

Is the "new guy" running, and fetching for you?

That's the makings of a good dinner, right there....

Great post Nath :D
Good to see someone shooting rabbits, down in my part of the world we do not have any :cry:
Interesting info on the Blue Tit too.

She has worked it out to just wait for the gun report. Then go look.
Sometimes she brings it back or half way.

Squirrel is her thing.
She is tiny, compare her to this rabbit!

Nath,

I'm sure you have said in the past, but what is the rifle in your pic with a suppressor ?

I enjoyed the photos, Nath. Matter of fact, I always enjoy your photos of hunting in England! Keep them coming. I have so many projects on the go that I seldom check out what's happening on the forum here, but when I do, I always look to see if you have posted something.
