Featured in Rural Around the Globe, Vibration in Art and Verse~VAVoom and the Addicted Photographer.
She has spotted a fish from her perch on the rusted piling, and is maneuvering for a dive. Her shadow in the setting sun was caught on the aged steel structrure. She lives by fishing; her only food is live fish which she must catch in the most dramatic fashion. This image was captured using a Nikon D700 and Nikkor 600 mm lens with 1.4 Nikon teleconverter. The photographer was hidden in the alder trees surrounding the salt water lagoon near Campbell River, BC, Canada, where the bird was fishing.
