Amazing photo. Perfect timing! Well done on PP and well done for such a brilliant shot!
June 30th, 2013  
I've already fav'd thi but was thinking about not again today. If I were you I would submit this into every photo competition I could find. As well as calendar comps etc. I really can't see how there can be many better of the moment shots to beat it. Just a thought! Good luck if you do! Let me know how you get on if you choose that route!! Well done again!

July 1st, 2013  
omg! that you caught both the heron's eye and the fish's eye dead on! supreme! really awesome capture!
July 1st, 2013  
Love the title.
July 1st, 2013  
Congrats on the PP! This freaked ...me...OUT! Because I saw it as a chipmunk eye (his right eye) staring straight out at us, with his right paw extended (it's really the tail of the fish) out the beak, like "HELLLLPP!" It is still freaky for the fish...but the chipmunk I thought I saw was even more freaky. This is so weird to see this fish as he is about to go to his death. Great capture! fav
July 1st, 2013  
Nature at its finest. I do feel sorry for the fish but happy to know that you were able to capture the last bit of light he ever saw. And the cylcle continues...
July 1st, 2013

Wow, it always amazes me that people manage to catch these sort of shots.. Even with my 55-200mm i seem to be MILES away and mine come out all blurry! Obviously have a lot to learn, but I'll always have a mass of respect for people who can capture things like this! Bravo!
