A Snail Kite dives on to a Snail in Central Florida. 

Anatomy of a Snail Kite Dive

A composite image showing the moment that the Snail Kite flips and dives toward the snail and plucks it from the water. It's an amazing aerial display that only takes a few seconds, and usually occurs with little to no warning.

Composite was created in Photoshop.
