Thanks all for your encouragement

The KF hunted the fish from the nearby pond.
May be you mean the fish did not look in a good shape as KF used its bill to speared the fish when diving into the pond.
But it was still alive when I captured these pics, the KF kept smashing it into the perch until the fish weak enough to be swallowed ;)

Correct, shot in burst mode hand held, only few keepers as most of the photos are shaky :sweat:

Thanks Numnumball, have tried increasing saturation and contrast in pp but the result not really good due to shooting in backlighting condition :bsmilie:

Wow! Amazing shots. Am surprised that it can swallow the entire fish without getting choke. Thanks for sharing. :thumbsup:

Thanks pcool, glad you like them.
I also amaze the way the KF swallow the fish without choking, it got to have elastic throat :bsmilie:
