While they are stunning shots I prefer a more natural shot - there must have been taken using a fish tank full of fish set up in a kingfishers territory (I've seen that done before and similar with similar results). Just hope that the photographer was responsible enough to make sure that they didn't disturb the habitat in doing this and also that they didn't do it for too long and make the bird dependant on the easy food they provided.
