The Fish was This Big!

Isn't it amazing how one guys fish is always bigger than the other ones fish, and then of course you always get those who tends to exaggerate. I think the one in the back falls with the latter mentioned group.
The 'man made structure' is not really a disturbing factor as lots of birds (and other animals) have shown their tolerance to human encroachment, but the fact is they themselves still remains natural. It's a case of 'the house does not make the man' if you get my drift.
You did well with your 'booked out' equipment. I must say, these Nikon's have weird numerics (625/1000000 sec) to indicate the shutter speed, but as long as it works 'who really cares?'
The composition is good and the colours are natural. The DOF & BG is excellent (who can fault such a nice blue sky?) and the exposure was very well handled.
Great work and TFS.

A good decisive moment...well captured.The composition is good as you were right to add the platform and the birds are nice and clear and with good detail.I like the title as yes it does seem as they are saying -"Look mate, mine was definately bigger".Good that you got the face of the one at back showing.No complaints...really nice.

You did a nice job on capturing these birds Lissa. Very cool how the one on the left is ducking just below the wingspan of the other. Good lighting on them too.

I saw a similar picture. On an electric column storks have made themselves a jack. A good shot.
