I took a rapid continuous shot of this heron and it was only when I got home I realised this one frame had caught a Kingfisher zooming past! Neither frames either side showed him so maybe that could be used to calculate his speed? The other frames were sharp but just on this one, the heron's head isn't which is a shame but is acceptable.

Amazing!!!!!!! This surely is a once in a lifetime shot for any wildlife photographer & something very special to have on file. The out of focus head of heron is nothing to what you have accidently captured, yes it would be great to have the head in focus but hey, this image is something special

A real pleasure to view

Amazing. A keeper, I guess, despite the focusing issues.

I take no credit - pure fluke! Even the Heron didn't see the Kingfisher!!Grin In subsequent frames he's still gazing into the distance!

When you told me about this shot I didn't think the KF would be that sharp.... truly remarkable...
