Hi Adrian,

Great picture of this magnificent bird. I really love the colours on these birds and you have captured them very well along with great detail. The fish in its mouth adds some good interest to the photo. You're really lucky to have this bird close to you, not many along the North Wales coast :).
Great capture and TFS


Impresionante captura, de gran habilidad técnica y de gran realismo en el color. Dinamismo del conjunto también muy logrado.

Wow, Adrian! What a moment to catch!!
Just the right camera settings for this kind of action shot. The fish and the bird in that split second are poised for the most dramatic moment in their lives.
Belated welcome to TN!
Thanks for sharing this prized image.
