Great captures indeed! The Bass is almost as big as the bird!

Good image. Notice that the bird ( and they always do this) has the fish in line with it's long axis. This is to reduce air resistance: makes flight more managable. They do the same thing when gathering large branches for nest building. Very well done.

A superb image Bill, especially capturing the eyes of both the bird and the fish like this, brilliant work!
