Thanks guys. I must say I've seen better but then I guess we all think that about other people's.It was just a question of luck and patience with a lot of help from the K-r's 6 fps in continuous, catching one just right.

Maybe the fish is the star, George! I'm trying to remember if it was after it had bashed it to kill it, as they don't crush it in their beak so to speak. It looks like it might have been turning it to get it head first before swallowing.
