I'm not a wildlife photographer but have seen a documentary on someone trying to capture this very shot and due to the speed of the diving Kingfisher I know how hard this must have been to capture so you deserve nothing short of a 5 star due to your expertise, timing, colours and detail captured.
Well done you must be super proud of this shot.

thank you Simon for your nice words! It was a one year project, so it took some time yes... ;-)

You could wear out a camera body trying to get these action shots although two sitting on camera is a riot!
