    Default Pied Kingfisher in flight

    Photographed this at Ranganathittu. While doing the boat ride, it suddenly came behind us and I got to take a few images as it dived to make the catch. The action was really fast and I couldn't capture the dive. Very interesting behavior to watch.

    Canon50D, 100-400mm L IS USM, ISO 400, 1/1600, f7.1, hand held.

    Comments and critiques welcome..

    The wingspread is nice. With a 500mm lens, this would have been full frame. The sky is overcast and the exposure is fine. This image would have gone up a few notches, if there would have been a catchlight in the eye. That is not in your hands. We can only hope. I like the composition. Thanks for sharing.

    Cheers,

    The pied kingfisher's distinctive feature of diving with its long beak pointing vertically towards the target nicely captured. Thanks for sharing. SaktiWild
