SLAM DUNK DA FISH

THIS is the incredible moment a pelican throws a fish into the air and SLAM DUNKS it into its enormous throat sack. The hapless catfish is seen flying around the rim of the giant bird’s mouth after being tossed in the air so it can be gobbled more easily. American photographer John Dykstra captured the moment on Lake Marsh in Minnesota, where he was in the right place at the right time.
