That's a really beautiful photo! May I ask how do you made it? I've read in the comments, that you've used the 600mm lens. Did you use it freehand or with a tripod? And did you sit in a hideout? Last week I've managed to get my first kingfisher, but only while he was sitting on a branch. And I don't really know how it is possible to get a photo of a flying kingfisher - they are so fast.
600mm on a tripod and about 150 hours of shooting a pair of kingfishers. After a while you start to notice their patterns and habits so it's possible to predict (to a degree) what they are going to do.
This image is one of a sequence of 6 frames of the bird going into a hover just before landing on a favorite perch. The hover wasn't expected but I already had the bird in the frame so I just hit the shutter and prayed lol
Advanced critique you say? Well, it's very well frozen very very nice blur, stunning colors, but I don't like the fact that it's kinda central in the picture... Anyway very nice and great shot. I'm curious what lens did you used and the setting especially the shutter speed...
He he... you surely have some nice money if you can afford 600mm lens and that Canon... Good for you And thanks for sharing the nice photos... but I was looking at you main page? Subscribed until when?!
