What a fantastic shot! You can just see that fish saying "Help me!"

Behind The Lens

Location
I took this shot in Saadani Park, it's in Tanzania, during a boat cruise.
Time
It was early morning, 7:44.
Lighting
There was nothing great about light. Just grey and no the sun. But, fortunately, the kingfisher let us to came closer, so i was able to took this series.
Equipment
I used Nikon D4, lens 70-200 f/2.8 plus converter X2
Inspiration
My favorite things to take pictures - any kind of action. So, when i saw the kingfisher who was shaking a fish, i was very excited and inspired to took this series of pictures.
Editing
I did a crop, and added more contrast.
In my camera bag
I usually have zoom lens and wide angle lens. Plus few special things to clean lenses and camera.
Feedback
You should just choose right settings and take a serial shots. And, be at the right place, at the right time!
