From the edge of the cliff he watched it come flying over the railing and land in the pond below him.
He had to go into the pond to retrieve it, but a couple feet of water wasn't going to stop him. It was all over in about four minutes, but the light that day just happened to be perfect for photos, which made the wait worth it.
He took that big cow femur back up to the top of the hill, and we knew that meant we wouldn't see him again for at least another hour.
