Azure Kingfisher

By John_Frid    
This fella obligingly sat on a branch and let our boat get within about 10 metres.

Due to being in a shaded area I had to push the iso up to 1600. Was pleased that the IS allowed me to hand hold at 1/160 without camera shake.

Taken on the Daintree River in Queensland, Australia.

Comments and crits welcome.

Thanks for looking.
