A big meal

This little fellow almost bit off more than he could chew, but three minutes was enough to get the job done and then he was off, perhaps to have a siesta and digest his big meal.

Fantastic sequence .... seeing the size of that fish, as i viewed your shots,  i wondered if he would be able to get into the air afterwards, but he managed it!

I'm with WhistlingDuck on this one. I'm suprised he/she could take off after a big feed like that!

Thanks Araminta and others for your comments. It was quite a sight to see. I thought he was going to choke to death. He should have asked me to cut up his food for him.

Hehe... awesome sequence of photos, mate. smiley He stares at you in a couple of the photos as if to say "What?"
