The Wait

I captured this shot at Central Park, New York City. A large fish had just bitten his bait when this picture was clicked. Light was fading fast on an overcast evening with occasional drizzles and I am glad I could get this shot. Had I arrived 30 seconds later, he would have got busy grounding the fish and then the light would have been insufficient even if he decided to sit again.

Thanks a lot to everyone who commented on my photos, or even stopped by for a visit. The comments have been pouring in pretty fast and I'm finding it increasingly difficult to reply to each individually. I'd rather spend that time in viewing others' photos and commenting there. But I do read each comment individually, and if you ask me something specific, I'll answer that.
