Besides the color, he caught a snack.
Magenta neck feathers, black tipped bill, and vivid slate blue can be seen in this bird. They go from a plain dark bird to these shades and peak for a short time. But during that time they are spectacular.
And here he showed me just how fast he can be.
All these shots were taken in a single burst, 10 shots a second.
The camera is fast, however he caught this fish in five frames. That’s half a second.
Really quick when they see a fish.
