Hi Eyal,
What a huge catch! Looks funny to see this little fellow with such a big fish compared to his body, he must have a good apetite :o) Very nice capture. Well done and TFS
Best wishes,

Hello Eyal,
What a great capture for you as well as the Kingfisher.
One would never think that a fish this big will fit in to the stomach of this bird.
Love the way you've captured the fish with his head towards the viewer.
Sharpness and lighting are superb and due to that deatails in the feathers of the bird and skin of the fish are wonderfully visible.
I did read in the photo info that you did also did use the 1.4 Converter wich gave you focal lenght of 840mm.
Excelent work. My compliments.
Thanks for sharing.
Best wishes,
