Default Kingfisher

Three very different shots of a Common Kingfisher

A distant shot in the Reeds

Coming in to land. With the poor winter light it's difficult doing any action shots as the ISO has to be so high and with the heavy crop it's not so good. At least the sun was out in this shot.

Looking for a meal but with the sun behind the clouds

They really are the most beautiful little birds. Even if you were unhappy with the light these shots still have appeal.
I like the first too - the little fellow stands out well with those wonderful reeds as a frame.
#2 is caught beautifully and fab colours in #3
Another enjoyable set Kevin.
