Two Ducks Fighting Over Dead Fish

I was by a pond photographing water fowl when I saw a duck pick up a dead fish out of the water. It continuously tried to swallow it but did not know how. Eventually the fish fell back into the water and the duck looked for it another 5 minutes to no avail. It was lost forever.
