Kingfisher

Hi,

managed a handful of shots of a Kingfisher yesterday morning, here is one of them. It's just a pity the branches are a bit in the way. I've been told it's a young female.

Lovely shot. I think I have only ever seen one of these - I have never had the chance to get a picture of one. Great work:clap:

Hi,

thanks for all the comments, as for it looking fat, she has just puffed up her feathers against the cold as it was frosty with some fog about that morning so it was pretty chilly ;)

As for patience, well I have plenty of that for wildlife photography although I was lucky this time, she caught the tiddler just down from me and then came and sat to eat it about 30 feet away within ten minutes of me setting up in my hide :clap: I sat for a further 2 hours and all I saw were some swans and a wren, I only took 5 shots all told and those were of the Kingfisher.

It's ok as a recoding pic I suppose but I know I can get better given decent light, will be back there again to try and improve on this one.

Mike.

Very nice capture. :thumbsup:
We sometimes see Kingfishers flying along the stream nearby, but they're just a flash of turquiose usually! ...I've yet to get a photo of one. I must try harder!
