La escena ocurrió en Cape Maclear, al sur del lago Malawi, una zona relativamente turística, y de una belleza espectacular. El protagonista, un águila pescadora africana // The scene happened at Cape Maclear, south of Lake Malawi, a relatively touristy, and spectacularly beautiful, area. The main star, an African fish eagle

la presa, un pez ciclídeo // the prey, a cichlid fish

Tras el rápido aperitivo, las cosas vuelven a su ritmo tranquilo // After the quick snack, things get back to its normal pace

Ahora le tocaría el turno a los martines pescadores... // Now it should be the time for the kingfishers...

I am very happy that you captured the precious moment. Well done.+1
But for such a huge eagle, he / she may have to hunt many times before he / she can fill his / her belly with small fish.

Hi! I'm glad you enjoyed the scenes. Indeed, a single cichlid will not give enough energy to our friend the eagle, but i guess he/she either is able to hunt for a few dozens more during that day, or either he/she got something more substantial, such as a juicy bream

The sequence is just overwhelming. I have seen one similar in Botswana, but the fish was bigger 😁

Thanks Antonio. It's true that for such an "epic" hunting scene, the poor little aquarium fish looks a bit ridiculous!smilesmile

In the very first shot, before read de caption, i thought... Lake Malawi! The last/lost paradise.
