Wow, incredible timing and framing, the way the splash emerges from the bottom left corner and the kingfisher continues that vector diagonally is highly effective at creating action and movement despite the 'freeze frame' shutter speed (and looking at the shutter speed, I imagine panning these birds is impossible!). Great colour and a lovely background blur too. This must have taken a long time to produce and good field work. Brilliant!
