Dives of the Kingfisher in Slow Motion

posted by Jason Kottke   Sep 08, 2023

Nature does its thing so quickly sometimes that you have to slow it down to appreciate the beauty and power of it. This is a video of a kingfisher plucking fish out of the water, with views from both above the water (which catches the dive and takeoff) and below the water (which shows the efficient grab of the fish). The underwater view is amazing...I'd never seen that before.
