The sad part, with 4k, he could have just filmed the thing and grabbed the frame he wanted...But you have to admire his dedication and persistence to get the shot.

Some great shots. The irony for me is that he spent all that time trying to get the perfect "dive" shot, but I much prefer the first "emergence" image in the article showing the bird coming out of the water with the fish in its beak.

My favorite too! Although, they ALL are very good. Talk about using the shutter! My 2 year old 7D1 has only 6200 clicks on it!
