i took this just to see if i could! :G the light was coming from the wrong angle, so i didn't get the color and contrast i'd have liked, but at least i was able to keep the little beastie in the viewfinder and in reasonably decent focus... 30D, Sigma w/ 1.4x, 1/2000 @ f6.3 handheld...

That's a pretty good shot Rocky. I've never been able to get within a couple of hundred feet of a Kingfisher. Skittish to say the least...cheers........Don

yeah, i usually can't get any closer than about 50-75 yards either. this shot was taken as he flew by about 50 yards in front of me... it'd sure be nice to be able to get closer to one of these little stinkers, but they're notoriously skittish around people...

Great capture



This bird is very fast and very skittish. I also have not been able to get within a 100 yards for one.



Thanks for sharing
Jeff
