In spite of the attitude the female kingfisher demonstrated in yesterdays shot this brave male decided to share the perch for a short while.

Thanks all.

Thanks Terry for the GEA.

Apparently not a pair as such, so can not confirm if in any way a family squabble.

Thanks all.

Not an easy shot to get as both birds were on the edge of the frame using the 500mm so I had to shift the tripod back a few inches to fit them in! Then trying to get a focus point in the right place and recompose with them moving around did not help. So I set the aperture to f/10 and pretty much hoped for the best. Worked out not too bad on about 4 frames.

With Looking at it Cheryl, The male has got a white tip to it's beak, which would symbolize the juvenile.. But wouldn't be 100%, We'd know straight away, with the colour of his feet.., An Amazing capture anyway !

Hi Luke, not sure on the white tip as he had just been pecking at the lichen, so what you are seeing in this shot could just be that rather than a white tip to the beak as such. I'll review some of the other shots to see if he is a juvenile.

Thanks all.

Won't have time to process any others this week so you'll have to wait for any future instalments Wink

Great to see two in one shot - even if they might not be a pair - you've done well in having to recompose and in discribing the difficulty encountered - Ina
