A Red-breasted Merganser drake enjoying an early morning breakfast of Goby.  This was taken at one of my usual haunts... our local harbor.  The Goby is an invasive species here so it's nice to see this duck reducing the population.   :D

Shot with 1D4, 300/2.8L IS plus 2xTC III



Thanks for looking.
Great shot, Harv.  I wish I was out there shooting today...  I'll take your Merganser and raise you one with a pair of youngsters (but your breakfast is much more filling):


Here's a bigger fish, but wrong bird:

I only shoot at ISO 100 with perfect technique - should I get a Nikon?

Fresh Cutthroat Trout

Take last April in Moose Wyoming during a light snow fall.

That looks more like a brook trout than a cut, with the white/black on the leading edges of the fins. I'm sure the heron didn't care!

Was that the beaver pond on Moose-Wilson?
That's where I got this guy, which might have even been the same bird.

Breakfast  600mm

Nice one!
I have a similar shot of a white weasel with something as large as he/she is in his mouth but not nearly as sharp.

Not unlike the Snake, Sometimes it's, "Squirrel, it's what's for dinner"
Sorry for the poor IQ, I didn't even see this one coming, just threw my camera up and started snapping in machine gun mode... got this one, it was all over in a second or two...

I may have posted this last year under the title "Flying Squirrel"   ::)

I love it and thanks for posting.  It reminds me of when I first move to my current neighborhood, which is very suburban but still pretty wild.  I was walking down the stairs looking out a octagonal picture window at a squirrel when a red-shouldered hawk swooped down and grabbed him.  It was surreal!  Your photo is very close to what I saw.

I didn't see the little fella at first, but that's a cool shot!  Did the owl get him?

AWESOME ... I had made a few images of a Heron eating snake in December 2013, but I couldn't get as close as your shots, as the heron was over on the other side of a small river bank and I was shooting at 200mm with 70-200 lens ... but your images capture the decisive moment superbly. Well done.
