A colourful kingfisher dives into water after perching on a photographer’s camera lens to scour the lake for food.  Photographer Larissa Rand was watching the bird at a small lake near the Dutch city of Naarden.<br />
<br />
The 46 year old was waiting in a hide for the perfect shot, when the brightly-coloured kingfisher landed right on top of her camera, using it as a vantage point to look for food and then as a diving board to spring into the water.  She said: "I was in a special hide close to the breeding location of a couple of kingfishers. A perfect place to observe and photograph these kingfishers, without disturbing them.
