Excellent action shots of the merganser!
Very interesting shots of the mallard and coot. I have never seen a mallard or coot catch or eat a large fish. They normally only eat tiny fish and tadpoles that supplements their main diet of plants and algae. It appears to me the coot has no chance of swallowing a fish that large. Did the coot actually swallow it?

Thanks Dave - You're right, the coot could not swallow the fish but he has his own way by picking it off the water and break it by the beak - He could not finish it - The coot wish to have a mouth like cormorant

Thao, a nice collection of images. A great low shooting angle. Maybe its me, maybe my 4k monitor is off but every image except the coot looks soft to me
