    Superb image in all respects
    An absolutely terrific shot - love the moment, love the clarity, love the light

    Not only is the action superb in this image, the low key of the background and bird contrast brilliantly with the silver of the fish. Such a great mood.

      Wow. This is gold! That's skill, Imagine trying to pickup a fish out of the water with a pair of chopsticks.
