Here's another shot from our Brazil tour last year, we photographed this Jabiru feeding on a piranha from our boat

Great action shot, Nate. You can even see the sharp teeth of the fish, excellent details.

Nate, this is superb. Perfect angle to catch the fish in the open mouth.

Nice action capture with good detail. Timing could not have been much better. Perhaps a little selective lightening of the blacks? The detail is there, but hard to see.
