he was catching fish and fly straight to me . I shoot burst of 5 frames and this one was perfect because of his unique position of wings . This is real picture , nothing is add in photoshop except color adjustment and little rotation to get more dinamic image . He just lift unreal amount of watter . Unfortunatly fish is little behind and not clearly visible in his claws .
