Remarkable action shot extremely well recorded. This is one of those perfect shots we all would like to make more often!

Hello Oz,
I have similar shot in my gallery - I mean a picture of a beetle eating a snail. They are quite disgusting really.
The shot is very good technically. I like POV here, composition could've been stronger though.
