Kingfisher Fishing

This female Kingfisher tried several times to catch small fish. Finally she was successful. And finally I was in the right spot.

She returned to the same perch after each dive.

These birds are incredibly fast, which means I miss many more shots than I get.

All the hard work paid off with a meal.

    1. Ours have a lot of blue that shimmers in the light. But I’d hate to try and photo them as they always seem to be flying fast or perched somewhere too high! Don’t see them much down south here. There were plenty where I grew up in northern NZ.
