ODD Fish Slingshot
In this Jan. 29, 2014 photo some of the nearly 50 photographers wait at Lock and Dam 14 near Le Claire, Iowa, for Ken Kester of Clinton, Iowa, to use his oversized homemade slingshot to throw fish out into the Mississippi River. Kester created the giant device this year and has used it only four times, the fish are thrown far enough away for Bald Eagles to snatch from the water but close enough for the photographers to capture dramatic images.
