Great flyby and the fish adds to it.

Impressive image. I like how the curves on the near wing flow perfectly into the far wing.

Beautiful result in what was a very low-light situation.  Great wing position, fish, and subtle backlighting also adds.  Probably fortuitous, but it's nice that the fish is accentuated by being against a slightly darker bit of background.

And the linked larger version is well worth a look.
