A male bearded reedling catches a cranefly. This species is a master of balance and the bird was spotted by Dutch photographer Edwin Kats using two stems to position itself over a shallow stream. He noticed the small bird - also know as a bearded tit - looking out for a snack. When a tasty cranefly flitted by, the reedling was able to dip down and catch it in one swift move. Edwin was also able to observe the bird one stem taking a drink. He explains: ‘Reedbeds in Holland and in the UK are a natural habitat for these birds. These images were shot in a beautiful natural area of the Netherlands called the Veluwe.
