A Kingfisher catching a fish

I spent a day in a hide on the river bank photographing kingfishers, the previous two days there were no sightings but patience was rewarded when they turned up on the third day. They were hungry as they caught many fish giving me ample opportunity to photograph these beautiful elusive birds.
