Kingfisher with Crab

By Mike_Young
Good evening all,
I'm very chuffed that my Marsh tit was so well received, thanks to you all for the Votes comments and awards, and last but not least the GEA.

Today a male Kingfisher taken at Titchfield haven nature reserve just before Christmas in very dark conditions. So much so, that I did not realise he had caught a tiny crab until I reviewed the pictures on the back of my camera. I though that he was struggling to swallow his catch because he spent quite some time juggling with it. The reason became apparent when I saw the image.
Hope you enjoy the photo thanks for looking.
