Two years ago during our New Year's break we went to a ryokan on the Ise peninsula, after which I posed about the great quantities of great food we were served. From the seaside balcony of our room on that trip, I happened to catch a few frames of a bird of prey taking the easy route and going with a prepared meal (stealing from a crow) instead of catching one itself....
