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

I've heard the 150-500 is better at F8. You have proved that idea wrong.
The clarity and detail is spot on with your' excellent photo.

Blimey, Lillian, this ain't half good, but I guess you knew that already. What a little beauty. As far as I know we don't have these colourful creatures over here, more's the pity. Will have to rely on images like this instead...
