Kingfisher

By Emmog
Hi all,

I haven't uploaded for a little while so I thought that I would upload another Kingfisher shot.

I haven't done much to this apart crop over 3/4 of a 12mp frame (!!!!!) and do a little sharpening.

I hope that you like it and all comments and criticisms are welcome
Matt

Hi Matt, brilliant to see you uploading again! Smile

This is gorgeous, so well timed (I can't believe how sharp it is, these birds are just a blur when they fly!). Smile
Great capture!

Thanks for all the comments. Really pleased that you like it. Karen, at the local nature reserve, there is a patch of open water where they usually fly and I, try to, listen out for the whistle although I rarely hear it!!

Superb shot! I find it really hard to get pictures of kingfishers let alone in flight.

Thanks Sam. I go to our local nature reserve where there is a hide that has a lake in front of it with a little stick on it that is quite close the hide. In summer, when the water levels drop, there is a shallow patch of water just below the stick where little fish hide out because water birds can't dive in it and big predatory fish can't get in. That is when the Kingfisher becomes a regular visitor to the branch and I try to photograph him (usually a male) when he is diving and flying across to the branch. I hope that helps...
