The last recipe I had for carp involved a freshly sawn 3/4 inch thick board of yellow pine, various spices, balsamic vinegar and broiling for 10 minutes. Then you threw away the carp and ate the board. Anyway, I would need Hubble to get a shot of a kingfisher. Great series.


Thanks for the recipe, I've heard of it with several different species of fish.

Great shots...I wonder how long it takes for the bird to digest such a huge meal?


I'm not sure but they are small and have a fast metabolism as they are flying constantly and often hover hunting for their fish. I do know he had to make room for it shortly after he swallowed it.

Herb, first of all, let me say

Now, I've gotta ask: How close where you even with that 800mm! How much of a crop was necessary? (And) Finally, how in blazes did you get that in-flight shot of a Kingfisher (no less)?!?

Omar


Thanks Omar, according to my exif I was 23.8 meters away, which I guess is around 72 feet away. Over 50% crop, flight shot was luck.
