A group of about 8-10 Juvenile Mergansers were rushing up and down the river to catch fish. The river is shallow and the water is clean, good for fishing.

Cracking shot Karl. Looks like the fish is diving straight into its gullet...

perfectly timed on your part to get the fish in the beak just before the swallow, good one .

Excellent image with the fish about to be swallowed- the water colour and patterns are a nice touch to this photo, Karl.

Karl, Thanks for sharing. I'm always surprised by the size of the fish that they can swallow.
