CommentI took my camera for a walk after lunch with the hope of getting some flight practice at my local pond. The Darter was preening when I arrived then slipped gently into the water and came up with a fish (juvenile Redfin Perch). It was overcast with soft light and the smooth background enabled a clean and simple composition that effectively tells the story.
