This is a picture of a Kingfisher taken from a hide on the river Salwarpe near Droitwich in the UK. The bird is enticed to the perch by placing a large tray underneath it that has small trout in it however, on the day that I was there, we had 6 visits from him to fish and every single time he dived in (about 20 in total) he went in to the river right next to the tray! He got a fish every time.
The sunlight was full and harsh but the colours on this bird really show up in the light. He has just arrived back at the perch after catching this fish. You get about 1 second before he shakes to remove the water on his feathers so a quick focus push and then click.
Kit: Canon EOS 1DIV EF 200-400 @ f/5.6 – 1/5000sec
