How lovely to get pic's of King Fishers Lillian, I've only ever seen them dark across the water in what seems a split Second. Very well done for finding them and capturing them so well.

Yes, Shreel, this is with the 150-500mm Sigma lens on a Canon D60
most important in my mind is that it is on a tripod and you take your time
plus check your settings of coarse
Thanks everyone

You've set yourself a good benchmark now Lillian.
Very good Kingy and yep I think you should call him Star Wink
Well waited and executed
What I would try next time is get the ISO to 400 and aperture to F8 as that is the optimum for that lens from past experience.
Well done again
