Mmmmmm fly for breakfast! (REAL PHOTO)

This is a real photo that was not staged or photoshopped (other than adjusting the levels, colors and contrast). I stood around for almost two hours on a dock training my lens at different flies in the water. For a while I would miss the fly being eaten, then I began getting lucky and figuring out how to tell when the fish were going to surface. In this one very lucky instance I saw the fish coming up under the fly straight on and just held the shutter down. It was a very lucky catch and made the two hours of standing perfectly still worth it.
