p.1 #1 · Dutch Kingfisher part 1


Took me five visits to the bird hide and many hours of waiting. But once the kingfisher appeared on the branch by the lake
he was kind enough to hang around for a while. I even had time to take some verticals.
All images are full frame shot at 420mm. Thanks for looking. Comments are always welcome.

Top set, glad to see he turned around for you this time.

No.4 is a real beauty Chris, that looks like a great spot to shoot from - you must have been pretty close even with a 420mm lens.

Excellent images Chris. The brilliant colours are set off nicely against the background. Patience can be a virtue as you proved here.

I do like the lose crops on these Chris, that adds a certain elegance to the shots. Well thought out

They really do make our Kf's seem plain. Your patience paid off well. Nicely done.

Thank you Paul.
The exif says 5.6m/18.4ft but it felt closer.

Many thanks Tim!
Not sure about the thought out part as I was much to excited to really think.
