Re-opening my account. I am not online for long hours these days but will make every attempt to contribute to the birds sub-forum.
This image is part a journey of sorts; when I first returned from England and purchased my Kazmierczak, I fell in love with the Crested Kingfisher. For some years I have had to make do with Pied, but the other evening this fellow gave me four excellent opportunities.
What makes it even more special is that it was photographed at my office
Crested Kingfisher, (Megaceryle lugubris) | EOS 40D, 500f4 IS + 1.4x II, ISO 400 on Aperture Priority at f5.6
Comments and critiques welcome, thanks for looking!
