The low perspective really works nicely here, particularly with the white water you captured in the background. Love the color, light, and pose. The prey is the icing on the cake. Excellent image, Leigh.

Great low angle, details and the snack adds to it. I'm sorry to hear about the 'passing' of your camera.

Leigha, Agree with comments. Well Done. Are you planning a burial ceremony?

lovely low angle & composition. Light & details look good.
The BG & the prey item takes it up a few notches.

Took the words right out of my mouth!  A beauty, Leigh.  I hope you had insurance for your camera.  :(

Super nice shot Leigh! I always loved your signature low angles. This is really nice. Sorry about your 80D. Such a good camera...I used to own one.

A great way for the camera to go out, with this image!
But, sorry --- just make it a good time to get a NEW camera! :-)
Excellent perspective, tack-sharp, pose and prey all near-perfect.
