Kingfisher





I do not actually like these images -- what do people think? always a nice bird but surely over done on the photography front?

No,not overdone,I love being able to see the detail of the bird.You even got the white part of his eye.
I can ID him better by seeing what he`s eating & I can tell how big he is.Great pictures! I need to invest in a new camera as well.phyllis

These are all so neat!! I think Kingfishers are gorgeous and I like their huge beaks and vibrant plumage!

Great pictures Graham. I have been studying the Kingfishers on my local patch for the past 7 years now. Last year I bought a DSLR camera in an attempt to get some good pictures of the Kingfisher. The challenge has been that I can never get close enough to them to get a really decent picture. Even with my Nikon 400mm telephoto lens I can never get close ups like yours. The Kingfishers would need to be as close as say 40 feet away before I could get a good close up. The closest I've came to them is about 80 feet from where they usually perch. I'm determined to get a similar shot like yours one day!
