Let's get some dinner!

This photo is showing a kingfisher diving for some fish to have some dinner. I was waiting for more than 3 hours to get a shot of the kingfisher and after another hour wait he came back and stayed for a while. I was running around in the hut to photograph this beauty and finally, after like 500 shots, I got him diving! The excitement is stil high when I see the image!
