I was busying keeping my eye on a GBH when I hear some splashing off to the side, I turned and saw this comorant catching his breakfast! I didnt know they could swallow a fish that big in one gulp! :shock:

Excuse the quality, these are 100% crops (420mm just wasnt enough this time) but I thought it was too cool not to share. :D

Good lord -- it never ceases to amaze me how birds can swallow a fish that's bigger than their throats appear able to handle!

Great capture, always worth shooting this sort of event even if you aren't really close enough.

I know! I thought he was going after some little minnows, I was shocked to see the size of the fish he got. :D
