Kingfisher – Getting closer!

A while back I managed to get a photo of a Kingfisher, but it was so far away and with only a 200mm lens, it was basically a blob of colour.

I’ve managed to get a new photo, in the same location as before – still had to crop it down but at least you can make the shape out now!


Is that a Kingfisher? Yes… yes it is!

So.. I know, it is not technically the best photo.  I cropped this to around 300 pixels at the long length.  But that’s not really the point.  It’s a Kingfisher!!!  I’ve never seen one in the wild,  never mind got one on “sensor.  I had my Nikon 200mm pointing in the general direction of where it landed, and this is it.  Of course, now I have to go out and get one that you can actually see properly…  Now where can I lay my hands on a 500mm F4?
