Collared Kingfisher
Flight sequence

Collared Kingfisher diving out of the water, after a quick afternoon dip in the Kinabatangan River, Borneo.

This sequence was shot with a Nikon D3 with 500mm lens on a continuous high burst mode, capturing all 10 action shots of the kingfisher within a split second. The images were later pieced together in Photoshop into one sequence shot. This allows the viewers to appreciate the details of the lightning fast dive of the kingfisher, which can’t be recorded in the human eyes and brain.
