Eye to eye; predator and prey! I like the way the backlighting makes the fish’s fins glow. Pretty intense image. Must be clicked on for better view.

Excellent capture of this feeding behaviour, Sandeep! Beautiful framing and tack sharp from top to bottom, and I love the way the fish is illuminated. Well done.

Great moment captured, it almost looks as if the fish makes eye contact with the darter.
