Default makin' a splash

just a fun shot i got at my favorite park this afternoon of a carp taking a leap right in front of a great blue heron... which looked like it didn't know quite what to make of the whole thing! 7D, 220mm, 1/500 @ f/5.6. coulda got a closer shot if i'd zoomed it to 400mm, but i didn't want to risk not getting the carp in the frame...

Great capture! The carp was taunting the Heron knowing that it was too big for the Heron to swallow.
