This doesn’t match the nighttime photography theme, but is the shot of the year for me.  While canoeing in the BWCA in Northern Minnesota this past September, we came across this adult loon attempting to swallow an enormous smallmouth bass.  The battle between the loon and fish took about four minutes before it was swallowed whole.  It needed to be lined up yet right (head first).  I like this shot because of the details, the water pouring out of the mouth of the doomed fish, etc.  Ended up being published in the Star Tribune newspaper.
