another Great Kingfisher photo!

I keep trying to get a better angle, without spooking them…They're so easily frightened off by the slightest movement, and yet if you keep still, you can stand twenty feet away and it's like you're invisible, even while firing burst after burst of shots. The sound of the camera's shutter doesn't seem to bother them at all.

I have a great position in my late father's office. the Kingfisher's often sit outside on the balcony railing or on a nearby flag pole. All i need is time to sit and wait. they react to any movement.
