I think your series is well done especially with the lens you were using.


TOTALLY WACKY roger

They look good to me, especially for a near 100% crop.

no problem with these. i'd like to know more about the 2nd KF tho.
I did a picture google search on "kingfisher south africa" and found it without problems. It's a Pied Kingfisher, and it seems to be pretty common.

These are a sequence of shots with it hovering, diving, and going to the tree branch with it's little meal. I saw this over and over again, but as you can see in these uncropped pictures 210 mm was just too short.

Great shots Kjell.



Reminds me, that until I started looking at this forum I thought all Kingfishers looked the same as the UK ones.

Great series, Kjell!! Those are pretty impressive given the lens limitations...even with the cropping.

Hey Dal, shows what I know, I wasn't aware that there are kingfishers in the UK!:G
I don't believe that there are any native to this part of the US so the only ones that I've seen personally are at the St. Louis Zoo.

Thanks for sharing Kjell...hope you had a great trip!
Ron
