On a recent holiday to Mexico I couldnt help but admire these magnificent birds diving into the ocean for a spot of lunch. So armed with my EF100-400 lens on my 7D giving it he beans at max fps I managed to capture this bird taking the plunge. Obviously I had to composite the 4 bird shots in photoshop into one image but I think the final effect is well worth it.

Love the idea but I feel the middle bird does not have a such a strong dynamic shape as the other two. Still worth my vote.
