New Kingfisher Images ( May )

28th May 2007
I've spent the last 3 weeks in between working, photographing some local Kingfishers.
It's taken a fair bit of time to get them to use the perches on a regular bases and what with the weather being so poor this month, I've had to abort a few sessions due to low light and rain.

My main goal was to capture them actually fishing, diving in,and coming out of the water.

Needless to say not everything went to plan but so far I've been happy with the results.

The above image is of one of the male Kingfishers with a super sized fish.

One of the hardest shots that I've been trying to capture is one of the Kingfisher diving into the water.
This has proved to be quite a challenge, what with the weather being so poor and not being able to get the shutter speeds required due to the low light, I've struggled on this one.
