Predator and Prey.
I am really happy to share this image with you which is been taken by my pal "Kunan Naik" on our last trip to Jamnagar Coast.

The lifetime memory of seeing this super fast predator on hunt. While shooting other waders he realize something happened so quickly as we didnt aware of the presence of this predator nearby and it suddenly appear. Swooped down and within fraction of seconds it was in air with its meal [Little Stint (Calidris minuta)]. In such condition his quickness and the 1dMk4 with 800 worked so well here with so much pleasure and joy We present you 2nd the best moment we witnessed in 2012 and captured as well.

Big congrats to my buddy Kunan who later so angry on me being on official phone and realize later and just witnessed moment through eyes while the Predator was going away.
