It is so difficult getting shots of birds in flight, I keep trying & fail miserably! To me this is a great shot.

Wonderful aerial shot, difficult to capture in flight, just being in the right place at the right time and keep taking shots.
Its a female by the wqy it has as they say lipstick on the lower beak

I like this a lot,
I love how the wings are blurred gives that sense of being in the hover mode.
A great capture.

Pretty darn good for a motion shot....I've been using a high least 1000...for my birds and it seems to work.

Quote:I know there are a lot better shots of Kingfishers on the site, but found this guy/girl near to where I live, been having a go at some shots for a couple of weeks, but with my limited skill at this sort of thing & the lens I've got I was well chuffed with this


I had the same experience around 3 yrs ago all I can say is keep going study the bird and reap the rewards, get your self a perch in and get closer to the bird, its a FANTASTIC rush to get one land 7ft away from you, well done !!!

Good shot. It's very difficult to snap birds on the wing.

Good action shot. Not perfect as you say but a damn sight nearer than I've ever got to catching one of these.
