Hobby at Wicken Fen 11/5/12

By warbstowcross
I was cursing I only had my 105mm lens with me. This is a very heavy crop so my apologies. I was on a boat trip up the Lode at Wicken Fen and there were a dozen or so of these catching the mayflies that were emerging. Because we were in the boat they ignored us and carried on hunting. We could see them bringing the flies in their talons up to their beaks.

Excellent shot, especially after a heavy crop.
