how did you get so close to that one? the closest i've been able to get is about 25 yards. they're super-skittish, and won't let people within decent camera range - even for a 400mm lens!
Yea, you're right about super-skittish but you've got to hold your mouth right and talk nicely to them. I was just lucky that day I guess. I was in my truck and when I saw him I was afraid to roll the window down but I did and managed to snap off 2 shots before he said "see ya later" and was gone.:lol:

Steve, Bob, Jeff Roger, and VP, thanks for looking in and commenting. And yes I was lucky that day to get the Kingfisher. That don't happen every day as you all know. I was grinning from ear to ear when I first saw it on my monitor.

Thanks again

Houston
