Kingfisher

The kingfisher is back on the lake where I usually photograph them. It is about this time of year when we start to see them each year. They are not very reliable yet, but I took a few pictures yesterday and will try again in the morning. I have started off on a very thin, but attractive twig, which I usually prefer to a larger branch. The downside to using such a flimsy perch however, is that the bird is not so likely to return to it to eat a fish as it prefers a thicker branch to slam the fish against before swallowing.

From a hide. Canon EOS 1d Mk1v. 800mm lens. 1/1250th at  f5.6.
