That is a special image. All that action, and a lovely reflection for the background. I particularly like the semi-circle of spray coming from the upsweep of the wing. Excellent timing, really well done.

This is a very interesting photo. The positioning of the wings and the water droplets following display the action very well.

Now that's a unique image for a bee eater, Tusar. Brilliant action capture with it rising out of the water surrounded by flying spray! Well done.

Cool moment captured and the low angle makes it even better.
