Photo of the day

love this shot and reading about how much work it took to get it.  From a recent Telegraph pictures of the day gallery:

Alan McFadyen has taken 720,000 pictures of kingfishers diving trying to get the perfect picture. A dad-of-three inspired by visits to an idyllic countryside spot to watch kingfishers as a boy with his grandfather spent SIX YEARS and took three quarters of a million photos trying to get the perfect shot in memory of his late relative. Alan McFadyen, 46, was taken as a young boy by his grandfather Robert Murray to see the kingfisher nesting spot at the beautiful lakeside location near Kirkcudbright, Scotland, 40 years ago.
