Kingfisher













Well my patience finally paid off and I finally got some photos of the Kingfisher. It's a flighty little thing and very hard to catch at times, but this time it waited for me on the stick LOL Well me and another half dozen people scramling for the same shot and with their fabulous lenses LOL. Anyway i'm pleased what I got with my 200mm lens, they could've been sharper but I have a shot i'm happy with.

I have been trying to get a photo of our local kingfisher for months now...he is always out when I have no time to stop, and never there when I have my camera. Go figure. He taunts me...lol. But really, great images!

Lovely series though

He is cute, I love this little bird. In German we say "Icevogel", that means "Ice bird". Great shots, Carol!
