Belted Kingfisher

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.

    1. Thank you. Living in the SC lowcountry, marshes and swamps, provides an unlimited supply of subjects. Of course I need to catch them with the camera, but I get practice here too. Thanks again.
