I sat watching this cormorant playing with this eel for about 5 minutes before it eventually decided to eat it.

hope you like it?

Hi Mark,

A well caught shot. Great focus and dof give fine details. Colours are good and good background. I like the action of the throwing on the fish and the splash of water just to the rear of the bird.

TFS regards Bill

Bellissimo scatto zeppo d'azione! Complimenti!

Ciao e grazie, Emanuele

with fine POV & DOF, fine focus excellent sharpness
and details, i love the waves that with the cormorant's action
is adding motion to the image, TFS

Hi Mark. The Cormorant looked like he was having fun with this Eel. You took it just at the right momment with the bird throwing it in the air. Good detail and natural colours. Well done TFs.

have a good weekend.

Pictures with great timing always stand among other pictures.
Moment captured is marvelous.
