Hi Fil
Fantastic photo and great observation. I like POV and of course the moment. Nice blured background, good contrast and sharpness

Hallo Fil
I wish I had more time............
However I cannot pass this by without saying. What a mouthfull. Great portrait with excellent detail captured, especially on the metallic coloured scales of the fish. I wonder if this bird's jaw ache at night having to open it so wide? Thanks for sharing.
Best regards
