A dive for nothing Kingfisher

By drbird  
Kingfishers are one of the most adorable native bird species. With all the hide locations available shots like this became relatively easy. My favourite spot is still the hide from my friend Alan (Scottish wildlife photography hides). The background is fantastic and the birds always are in prime condition. We visited the place for my wife's birthday and she had tons of fun as did our friend Mike who with his D5 monster had the advantage of very good high iso and a fast frame rate. Well the 7D2 didn't do too bad but honestly a couple of frames more and a bit faster shutter speed would have been really good on some images.
