Hello Derek,
I would be simply thrilled to capture a moment such as this. Perfect timing and super sharp focus. The bird and fish are easily seen and in fine detail. Well done!!

Hello Derek
Great timing of this common merganser catching a meal and showing off his fish. Detail is sharp and colours are great.
