Sequence 1 of 3:  A tiny fish escapes the grasp of a hungry kingfisher as it dives into a tank of water.  The near miss is captured in a sequence of images as the bird plunges below the surface, misses its target and emerges empty handed.<br />

Photographer Paul Sawer, 47, set up the 15 by 15-inch tank on the kingfisher's hunting territory and placed the rudd fish in it as bait on the River Alde, Saxmundham, Suffolk.  SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.<br />
