Photographer's Note

A Photoshop merge of successive photographs of a sea eagle taking a fish out of Lake Malawi. The men of the tourist boat whistle to call the eagles and when one comes they throw a dead fish for it to swoop on. It was a spectacular site. It was fortunate that I had just worked out how to shoot in continuous mode.

The boat was bobbing around somewhat so I had just to try to keep the eagle in the viewfinder. The eagle made an arc as in the photograph, but I must admit, the arc as you see it was constructed in Photoshop. Mind you, it was lucky that the eagle did not take the fish from the left: the composition would not worked so well.
