Tom Tom too

By AlanWillis    
Many thanks to Chensuriashi for his Tom Tom award.

It's taken a few months to get to this point.
Yesterday I had the front of the hide open for a short while, during which Tomas caught some fish.
Kingfisher photography is about making the kingfisher feel safe, and relaxed.
I have gradually moved the hide to 3 meters from the kingfisher, this has taken months.
It took him a long time to get used to the lens moving,
To improve my flight shots I now need to take the camera off the tripod, so I can pan when he dives for a fish.
If I can achieve that, my Image quality will improve.
Tom is one of the faster kingfishers ( takes after his dad. ) quite a challenge to photograph in flight. The females are slower and more predictable.
