[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This shot was taken in fish ponds at Ma'ayan Zevi, this is a place near Hadera in the north close to the sea.
Those hunters are emazing, in each dive they get one fish out of the pool.
In this shot I managed to catch one that arrived a second sooner than the other and took the prize out of the water.
Hope you will like it.
This is the full frame.

Excellent action shot Elroyie. In NZ we call similar birds BLack-backed Gulls - the higher one would be a juvenile gull. You have captured them both very well. Good sharpness and details. Well done.

Well catched, Elroyie, spot on the action. Seems, according to the lack of contrast, that it was an overcast dark sky and it was raining. Beautiful flying attitude from the loser. At least he's got that :-) See workshop.

Good capture , the movment is very well seen , strange double wing effect to the Juvinille in the rear.

Very good action shot, very interesting.
Good sharpness and POV.

Excellent action captured. Tack sharp details. I am also fascinated by the double effect as Robert mentioned. Any ideas? The top bird is a tad oversharpended as can be seen from the halos on the right wing and tail. Great shot none the less.

Elroyie, Man, I don't know how you only scored 10 pts on this GREAT action shot! Very nice!!

Nice clear shot of both gulls Elroyie.
