Stunning kingfisher photos taken at Wildlife Photography Hide near Bourne after patient snapper waits 10 hours
A patient photographer waited for 10 hours to be rewarded with this perfect, pin-sharp photo of a streamlined kingfisher diving into the water to catch a fish.
The striking shot, taken at the Wildlife Photography Hide near Bourne, makes the brightly-coloured bird appears as if it is balancing perfectly straight on the point of its beak in mid-air, just a split-second before it breaks the still, glassy surface of the water.
Its wings are perfectly tucked in against its vivid blue body, creating an amazing mirror-image reflection in the water underneath it.
