Default Common Kingfisher - third series (FZ150)

Hello guys, I hope I never get bored .....
Yesterday I did not have to go, but in the afternoon the weather improved, and I could not resist making a last visit to the oasis, before a long period of obligatory stop!

Excellent shots, one of my favorite birds.

How far away were you and did you use a tripod?

My goodness! What a series Alex! Fantastic shots, especially the two birds, BIF and the one holding the fish! Great going! Very well done.

most people don't get to photograph one Kingfisher but you got 2 at the same time... excellent series Alex my friend. was this with the 150's own lens or with the lt55 strapped on ?

Thanks dear John! In these photos I'm just using the FZ150 without additional lenses
