A Great capture of the African Darter! Believe my or not but I have had the experience of seeing the stabbing in real life! My previous sport was angling and when sitting on the boat for 10 hours on Loskop dam during a competition you can not ignore the Fishing Eagle catching it's prey, the African Darter on a dry branch stabbing it's prey and many more. The details on your exposure is significant to what I have seen. Beautiful composition my friend. Well done with your exposure and notes!!

I at first thought this was a Cormorant from the thumbnail image and was surprised to see it it actually a Darter. It looks very similar to the cormorant, but after reading your notes, I now see there is some distinct differances.
Love the pose and super fine detail you managed to capture. Color is true and natural and exposure is perfect. Great job on the photo and your very informative notes!!
