Dedicated Noel Marry got the perfect photo of a kingfisher catching a fish - after spending a year setting it up.
 The father of three was close to giving up on his dream of photographing the brightly coloured bird diving underwater for a minnow.
 But, just as he was about to pack in his year long quest, his efforts were rewarded with stunning pictures of the fish 'plunge-diving' to catch its lunch.
 Mr Marry got the idea after watching a BBC documentary about the notoriously shy bird.
 The 53-year old built a fish tank in which he would place a minnow he caught in a net before almost completely submerging the tank into a river.
 Mr Marry built a hide for himself metres away from the tank so he didn't scare off the bird and operated the camera by a remote control.
 He built a perch above the tank and over the months the kingfisher got used to fishing its lunch out of the tank.
 Gradually, Mr Marry was able to take it further out of the water so that he could get a clearer shot.
 And eventually he was able to snap the bird with the tank completely out of the river as it dived headlong into the water to catch its prey.
 The photos were taken at the Broadmeadow river, in Swords, County Dublin, Republic of Ireland.
 Mr Marry said: "I was absolutely delighted when I got the set of photos as it was the result of a lot of months of hard work.
 "I would sit and wait for hours with my camera and sometimes the bird wouldn't even show up.
 "I was starting to get downhearted and just when I thought about packing it all in it just happened. It was really special."
