Firstfruits of project kingfisher

Lack of blog posts recently has not been due to a lack of photographs. I've been a bit busy! In fact I have a fair few new shots to post up from the last couple of weeks. However, I'll get the ball rolling with a couple of shots that are hot off the press.



In recent weeks I've found a rather friendly kingfisher in my local park. In fact I can reliably guarantee to see it every time I visit. On a couple of occasions it has sat for extended periods of time in full view. Never when I had a camera to hand of course. So today I set out to redress that. In the space of three hours it flew by no less than seven times and settled twice. On neither occasion was it quite as close as it has been in the past - but I still managed a few shots. These are both cropped fairly aggressively - but I'm pretty happy with the results!

  1. They are really nice pictures Ian. It is a quite difficult bird to get and it's nice if it's just standing somewhere you can take pictures. I hope to see more ;-)
