I know this is not a great shot of a kingfisher, but i have been trying to photograph this bird for more than a year and it was a thrill for me to get this shot as it is such an elusive bird.

Thank you to everyone who looks at my shots and to everyone who leaves a comment. They are all very much appreciated.

You`ve got a better shot of this little fellow then I`ve got, Lawson !! I know how hard it is to capture them !!
Greetings, Cees

Lawson this is on my wish list, so you have one up on me as i have never even seen one to photograph yet :-(
Good capture of the elusive thing

Regards
Bryan

Well at least you succeeded to capture a Kingfisher.
I never did.
I know very well how it feels the moment you see him right in front of your lens as the adrenaline is going and going.
Good work and keep on shooting, one day you will capture him the perfect way.

Mark

I dream to see one of this wonderful birds one day - and you took a beautiful photo of this bird!! I like the colors and the light! Good work!
Thanks for sharing!
Barbara

Lawson,

Your patience has paid off. Perhaps crop to have bird fill the frame?



Maurice Mercier, 4.12.2008 at 22:26h

I like it !
In germany - he is the bird of 2009 and I hope to
catch him.
Best regards - Maurice



Leonid Khodyrev, 4.12.2008 at 23:35h

It caught my eye from thumb view and it did not disappoint me in full frame
It is exactly the case when one can happily forget about minor technical imperfections

Best wishes

Been trying for years and not much to show for it. Regards.
