A photographer has captured the remarkable moment diving kingfishers grab unsuspecting fish in their beaks in a series of incredible shots.  The quick-action birds are plunging into the shallow depths from around 10 metres above the water's surface in Naarden, in The Netherlands.<br />
<br />
They carefully scan the blue water, hovering quietly above, before hitting the water at high speed and grabbing a fish in a split second.  The birds pierced through the water in order to get their beaks around a number of fish, including three-spined Sticklebacks, common rudd and silver bream.  SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.<br />
