I had another session this morning with the Kingfisher. A 4.45 start allowed me to get into place in time and wait for the sun to pop its head over the bank, lighting just the bird and plunging everything else into darkness. Although I’m extremely pleased with this image a photographer is never happy as it wasn’t the image I was after but tomorrow is another day.
European Kingfisher, Alcedo atthis, May, 2012.
