I photographed this Pied-billed Grebe with Fish in an area known as Miners Cove. This is at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma. The Pied-billed Grebe was swimming around in the cove with the fish. Most of the time they will swallow what they catch as soon as they surface. Because the fish was large the Grebe could not swallow it that quickly. It took a minute or two, but it swallowed it.
I had my camera and lens resting on a bean bag draped over the open window of my pickup.
