This female Kingfisher was caught in a fly by shot. Here I was ready since she had been moving pretty consistently between 2 perches.
They are too fast to catch unless you have seen a pattern in their flight. I don’t even try now. I prefer to shoot a sitting shot, then watch. In general I get the first image done and out of the way.
Again (like the last Kingfisher images published) there were no diving shots taken. The bird never even attempted one.
