On Golden Pond in central Florida this morning.  What a fisherman he is - 3 at one time - amazing.  Doesn't usually happen to me but I was in the right place at the right time with amazing light.

Well done, Jake! An excellent feeding behavioral shot in gorgeous lighting. This is the first triple I’ve seen with this species. Great execution of this very fine image. :)

Very unique opportunity captured very well. Makes you wonder how he did it - so it is a great imagination triggering image.

That's some catch! Wonderful shot, Jake. Everything comes together beautifully with this one - or should I say three!

Wonderful image/great capture!!

As an aside, was it sprinkling at the time of the photo? There are a handful of vertical streaks scattered over the image that could be falling raindrops.

Nope.  He was shaking the fish and the water drops were flying off.
