Kingfishers: incredible underwater hunting photos


Marilyn sez, "Charlie Hamilton James took some incredible photos of flashy Eurasian kingfishers diving and swimming underwater to spear a fish in a stream. The kingfisher's got a translucent membrane that protects its eyes, and you can see its eye very clearly in this underwater photo as it captures its prey. From National Geographic magazine, November issue."
