Sacred Kingfisher

One of the frustrating things about not having a super-zoom lens is not being able to get great bird shots – this little kingfisher isn’t really dominating the frame. Although I guess a longer zoom would mean dragging a tripod around everywhere, which I’m not anxious to do.

I waited for ages focussed on him waiting to see if he’d turn around so I could get the lovely blue-green feathers on his back, but no such luck – he wasn’t going to turn his back on the crazy human crashing about below his branch.
