Underwater action of a small bird Kingfisher shows the bird's exceptional ability to hunt underwater, diving with blistering speed into the water and unmatched precision with his sharp beak grabbing a small fish. Just a fraction of a second, after successful hunt, he flies out of the water with high speed toward the branch from where he spotted the prey. Soon after he kills the fish, smashing it on the branch with a few knocks and swallows it.

Just fraction of second, after successful hunt he fly out of water with high speed toward the branch from where he spotted the prey. Soon after he kills the fish with few knocks smashing it on branch and swallow it. My aim was to made yet unseen wildlife photographs that are breathtaking in eyes of spectators but also jury. It took enormous effort and brought a lot of frustration for me to made them, but i was so much determined for success that i could not give up, never, ever until i got them perfect.
