I was fortunate enough to get this image yesterday, although it's not a full frame image :-( I was quite pleased with it.
Taken in landscape orientation I've cropped it to portrait, same height, just some of the sides missing.
Thanks for looking
Stunning, was looking forward to this after yesterdays
Never sen better of a kingfisher in action. A real stunning capture. Cant praise this highly enough.
Wow! You've cropped it to a perfect composition, what an amazing shot! This has to be one of the best ones I've seen, brilliant!
Brilliant shot I know how difficult these are to get right - I still haven't got one yet!
i've seen worse
Great timing. Lots of energy.
Damn you! Now i'm envious!!!
Crack on! i was looking at KF pics on another site last night with them entering and exiting the water and they were nothing compared to this!
Stunning capture. Geoff
Thanks all for the kind comments..
If the light had been better I would of had a shot of it just before it entered the water but the shutter speed was too slow and the Kingfisher was too fast..Lol..
Fantastic timing and great action
Wonderful! And what perfect lighting too
Tony, this is a fantastic image....
Oh yes..superb timing Tony.Love this to bits & so wish it were mine!!
what a superb capture
Wow, this is superb. Great timing..
Just awesome Tony.
So explain this to me then!
How comes you can capture this moment, but when the GG was in flight all you did was complain that you couldn't lock on. Obviously NOT challenging enough for you
Poor fella, he is all wet.
Wow, great timing, good shot.
Incredible shot. Well done.
Great capture and congrats on the EC!
Fantastic capture congrats on EC,
Congrats on both EC's....
2 in a row.
you are HOT HOT HOT
Super image -
Magnificent Keith. Well done on Ecs
i think everybody has already said it all,but i just had to say well done,fantastic well timed shot,perfect.once again well done
Thanks all for the kind comments..
Thanks for the EC Pete, much appreciated..
Cheryl, it was that crap big lens it's not fast enough.
I did get some of the GG with the little lens mind, look forward to another trip up there in the autumn..
Thankyou, Tony, that has made my day.
I sit here with mouth agape, which slowly turns to a smile.
If you hadn't got an award for this, I think I'd have left ePz for good !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
That's a bit extreme Pamela... Lol..
Thanks for your kind words.
excellent - timing and composition.
WOW.Excellent capture Tony.Very well done.Hoping to get something like this,this year.Totally failed the last time.
Big congrats on another EC.
Wildbird photographer of the Year perhaps Tony. At least an e/c to start with and more to come. Fantastic image, power and grace. Ron.
Terrific action shot.Superb.
Superbly timed !!
crackin shot well taken
Quote: Cheryl, it was that crap big lens it's not fast enough
A bad workman, blah, blah, blah.
Actually Tony I think this shot is incredible. I know a lot of people will be comparing this with the shots from last year by AR, but since yours did not involve a fish tank, so you had no control over the entry and exit points of the KF I think this took more craft.
I'll give you a free place in autumn for a couple of hours with the KF
Great Image, well done! Can we have one sat on a Superbike next please
excellent timing and capture,congrats on the EC
Awesome capture. Beautifully timed, congrats on your EC too.
Damn right it deserves the EC.
POTW as well, I reckon.

I can't really add anything other than to repeat how stunning this is. A mixture of good luck + excellent timing and preparation has led to a simply fantastic shot!
Talk about capturing the moment you have here my lad what a shot.
Well deserved of the response it's had....INCREDIBLE !!!!!!!!
Just don't know what to add.
As someone once said to me, sometimes lady luck just hands a magic moment in time to you. Yep, true, but it still takes great skill to keep cool and take a whopper like this.
Congrats on all the awards!
Well deserved POTW, excellent shot.
I think I spotted a small sensor dirt spot other than that its a nice pic LOL!
Joking aside, beats my pic of a blackbird sitting on a branch pants down LOL!
What can I say that has not been said? "it's a real bad ass image" ?
well done on all three awards
This is an absoloutly awesome picture! Fantastic detail in the bird and the water. I'm not surprised on on the accolades it has received, as they are all truely deserved.
If I ever take a photo as good as this I will be a very very happy man. I aspire to this standard of photography - it's a joy to look at.
