133/365 Kingfisher Part V

Here’s another image I’ve finished processing from a session last week.  This individual was watching a buzzard soaring overhead.  When you have watched Kingfishers for several hours you find out what makes them tick and start to predict what they are going to do next.  Hearing a Buzzard calling I knew this Kingfisher would instantly look up at the sky when it flew over.  They do this ‘sky pointing’ behaviour quite a lot and to most things… gulls, helicopters, herons…so I had plenty of opportunities to get this image.  I kept this bird fairly small in the frame as well.  I could have easily placed the 1.4x converter on and achieved a bigger image in portrait orientation but felt this was a better composition.
