Excellent timing to freeze the frame as the bill of the Kingfisher penetrates the water.

Were you pre focused on a spot that you thought she might hit or did you pan all the way down as she dove?

With this bird I was focused on it while it hovered and then followed it down to the water, clicking all the way.
