I've been struggling lately to get more images of the kingfisher diving in and erupting out of the water.
So I've decided to call it a day on my Kingfisher project, I've spent near on 2 months working on them and need a change and something new to post..
Not the best shot in the world as the focus point is on fish, but it's one of the best near full frame images I managed to capture.
Thanks for looking.
Beautifull shot on the right moment
I like it
great shot ,long wait .mart
Wonderful capture, terrific timing
Quote: Not the best shot in the world
Blimey your hard to please.
Looks great well done.
Fantastic what more can I say
No not the best shot in the world, but that title is available for only one shot and this is stunning so I would say that is good enough for most viewers
You are sooo picky
Wish this were one of mine!
Superb timing Tony.
oh my goodness - this is just amazing!!! The light, action, composition - all are perfect!!! RESPECT!!!
This is brilliant.....good luck with the new project...until the next kingfisher fix !!
wow stunning well captured.
Might just want to clone out some of the brighter drops for presentation here.
AS GOOD AS ANYTHING andy rouse has produced, stunning shot , the very best and worthy of a EC
SUPERB wildlife capture...worthy of all the trouble it undoubtedly took.
Another great shot.
This is a stunning shot. 20/10 for that one.
Only kidding of course, one from the top drawer of a very tall chest of drawers!
Awe inpiring!! Gotta be another EC surely
Awesome capture, well done.
Stunning image & timing.
Outstanding for me, and the focus on the fish looks good to me - the fish is the focus of the birds attention after all. Outstanding.
absoloutly brilliant pic deserves hundreds af clicks
Thanks all for the kind comments..

Thanks Melanie, I did look at that and thought about removing some of the brighter droplets but I kind of liked them for some reason.
Thanks all, much appreciate the input.
Fabulous capture with superb timing. Really great shot. Nettles
It baffles me why this has not got the e/c and everything else, simply Superb! A lot of hard work has paid off, this surpasses the bird on a branch. How difficult this is only you know Tony. I take my hat off to you. Ron.
Absolutely out of this world --brilliant. The timing on this is supreme. i am green with envy.
All the above. Sensational shot.
The speed these things fly and dive about at, and you have captured this and countless others with such clarity and composure, you do yourself an injustice. Puff that chest out and have a big smug grin on your face, this is worth it, superb.
Superb. Absolutely splendid.
It's not the best shot in the world? Maybe, but there are hundreds of EPZ members out here, like me, who would give their eye teeth for a shot as good as this.
This is a dynamite shot! Sure to be a crowd pleaser, tell you what, I will trade you one Blue Bunting for one of your King Fishers! Excellent Camera work Tony! Spot on! Click!!!
This shot will pay for the 2 months spent on the wait. Well done.
WOW, you may not think it's the best shot in the world, but to me, it's wonderful.
Only one word to describe this - superb.
Thanks for sharing this image with us, deserve at EC this one.
This is brilliant.
An HC too..well done Tony.
Unbelievably well taken - I admire your patience too Congratulations on the HC.
cracking shot .spend the time you get the rssults
1st class mate. Deserves POW imho.
Congrats on the HC!
Well you've already said in your comment that the focus is on the fish, but just imagine how good this one would have been with the focus on the eye.
A pic most of us can only dream about taking.
So we'll let you off this time.
Thanks for the kind comments everyone..
Thanks for the HC Pete..
Thanks Cheryl, I was gutted when I checked this image out for sharpness, soooo close, and it was the only time the Kingfisher fished from my perch that day... :-(
Still looks stunning to me.
faints.. !! oh my
You're certainly setting the standard with your wildlife images.Without a doubt some of the finest on the forum.
Always a pleasure to view.
Fab shot, congrats on HC
Real top-notch picture, they just keep coming, nice one.
Perfectly timed and taken.......a beautiful capture. Congrats on your HC.
As someone who doesn't get a chance to even look for these gorgeous birds, never mind find one... never mind try and shoot one... this is gorgeous! Very well caught!
Hey, come on Albi, this shot is as near perfect as you're going to get. The fish & the bird's head are in focus & the rest is near enough. The composition is spot-on. I'd just clone out that white blob top right. This shot would grace any wild-life magazine. Just tell us how you did it & how long you had to wait.
any more of the KF in focus would spoil the dynamics of the image
WOW!!!!!!!!!!!! nuff said lol.
Only just seen this Tony...been away for a while
What a project it must have been
A top notch shot
Some of these spots have to go as well LOL.
Agree with Justin C. Usual high standard. Great work Tony
I love this just as it is & agree with riprap007s comment
farr this is just ridiculous. a fan-f*cking-tastic shot here pal
Wow, wish it was in my pf, focus or not.
Wow! It's all been said.
Stunning ..... and I am gutted that you haven't posted anything else! Hope that you will
be posting again soon, whatever your next subject may be! Click*
Wow! What a fantastic shot,wonderful timing.
Fantastic shot....Excellent timing and technical ability...
Cracker of a shot and well done on the dedication that you've put into this!
