Great image, Axel- quite dramatic with the prey and the churning water and droplets, all captured so well.

I'm not surprised, it looks way too big to swallow.But I'm sure it found a way.Nice action shot, Axel.

Excellent action shot. Did he manage to swallow it?

Thanks, Karl! Eventually, the Kittiwake figured out how to swallow the fish in one piece but it took several attempts.
