Not great, but it's a KINGFISHER!

3 posts in this topic

Went back to the herb farm to pick up my blind and decided to sit alongside the river and watch. The owners had heard one this morning and saw last night. I put my blind in the car and proceeded to set my butt by the river, on my camouflaged stool. I was in full camo, including a face mask sprayed with Deepwoods Off. I sat there and waited and watched. All of a sudden, off to my right, I sensed movement. He landed on this dead tree and I had time to get off 3 quick shots. Unfortunately, I had the camera set wide open at 5.6. It had been cloudier just a minute before he appeared. I have got to learn how to change settings on the fly. frown If I would have quickly changed to F8, I would have certainly had a sharper shot. I will be going back, to improve on this one. Anyway, at least I got an OK one.

I just noticed how much better my photos look on my calibrated desktop monitor, than they do on this laptop. What a world of difference.

Great shot, it shows the nature of the kingfisher, sitting on a snag and waiting for mr. minnow to come by.
