And look what I caught! Hahaha, I had no idea!

During an outing last month I came across a couple of shelduck. They were too far away but I had the 800/11 with me and took a few shots just for the sake of it. I looked at one or two of the shots at home and selected them all to be deleted. But, I never do that right away. i always wait one or two months. Well, tonight I was going through my March folder and a fish had photobombed the shelduck (he was a bit to the left of the fish)! And I totally missed it! There is a short sequence of 4 shots and I put them together in a little collage. I didn't edit them, just applied some sharpening, but how cool is this? It is definitely a first for me! :lol:

Here's one of the original images with the shelduck (crop from the left, the fish was at the edge of the frame). It amazes me that I never saw it! I mean, it's not exactly a small fish. Speaking of which, what kind of fish is it, anybody know?

Sometimes it just works out ߘ. Looks like a Carp, to me.

A carp it is then. Thanks, guys.

It’s a pretty big fish, isn’t it. Shelducks are big birds and this fish doesn’t seem much smaller.

Sometimes you're on a boardwalk at a lake in Texas looking for birds and you notice gators up close.

I'm guessing the 20 ft MFD wasn't a problem here.

Actually, the first one was super close and I had to move back on the boardwalk to get it in. The second was a bit farther but I couldn't get the whole gator in. Not much cropping on either shot.

I was partly joking. 20 ft is about as close as I'd want to get to a big gator. But for larger subjects 800 mm make you back up anyway. And those are great head shots.

While a good sized fish, you may find it shocking that that looks like it's probably on the upper small to low medium size for those things. Given your location and what we can see of it, I'd say your most likely bet is a a Eurasian Carp, which can grow to around 80cm and 14kg. They're a lot like catfish, in that they're bottom feeders and they're terribly bony.
