My best side?

By Stevetheroofer
I took this photo from about 6m away from her perch. I had seen her flying about earlier so made myself comfy between two Laurel bushes.She arrived at the perch after about 40 minutes waiting.She remained at the perch for about ten minutes. I have my lens wrapped up in an old camoflaged jacket sleeve and my camera is covered by the cut off hood off the jacket and mounted on a tripod. Not only is this set up waterproof, it is cheap and muffles the sound of the camera. I dont shoot my camera like a machine gun like most people seem to do in the bird hides, but one shot at a time so as not to scare the kingfishers. This picture was shot at quite high iso of about 1100.
