CommentPleased to achieve this close up which is quite difficult given they are swift and don't sit still for long when feeding. Captured looking down from a bridge with a water course below gives a nice bokeh. Some colour matching with the orange face and the bokeh helps tie the image together. It was calling so chose a mouth open frame. The high ISO is because I was shooting BIF at the same time and had insufficient time to change it when this opportunity arose.
