Great shot, shame that it is a tad out of focus.
Well done m8 I know how much that shot means to you all those times of getting up at 4:30 as really paid off, we should-like we've been saying for ages.

Back in England tomorrow late.

I am soooooo looking forward to the air show with you

P.s I have just checked to see if the Vulcan is flying and it is so even more to be exited about

Speak soon

Regards George

This is a good shot of a kingfisher and im sure you are pleased especially as its your first.

However you seem to be suffering camera shake as the whole picture seems soft. You dont say whether you used a tripod or not, my guess is you didnt. If you are without a tripod you need to get the shutter speed as fast as possible 500 would be good especially if you are using a long lens which are difficult to keep still.

Well done for capturing and seeing this lovely bird.
