went to a different park from my usual haunt... this one's a neighborhood park in a rather well-to-do little town called Medina, about 10 miles from where i live. i'd never seen a kingfisher there, but spotted this little guy fly across a pond, so i wandered around the shore and lo and behold, there he was, perched in a willow tree over a small brook. he actually let me get within about 30 feet of him, which is amazing... the closest i'd been able to get till now was about 30 YARDS! i snapped a dozen or so pictures, then got greedy and tried to get even closer. he decided'd been generous enough, though, and flew away...

Best Kingfisher photos I've seen! I agree, they are nearly impossible to get close to.

Good job.

Simply OUTSTANDING :!:



Most of my Kingfisher shots are from 100 feet or more.

Nice job
