    It's great that you even got the opportunity to shoot these. You do need either a longer lens or to get closer if you're going to get any real success with them. It's difficult to tell on these images, but a faster shutter speed might be a good idea too.

    Thanks kindly

    Thanks Chris
    The down side is I was using a 300mm f2.8 with 2x converter, shutter speed 1/640th but the Kingfisher decided to go fishing about 2 thirds round the lake from the hide I was in.....:er:

    On the other hand maybe a smaller lake should be your approach... :lol:

    Ok so they are not the best photos ever but who cares?
    Best thing that has ever happened was the camera, you can slow down time and enjoy wildlife at its best!!

    Andy is saying it all.
    And I mean, you could also have taken the one and only photo you EVER took of a kingfisher on the one and ONLY moment you EVER saw one in your life and it could have turned out like_this !!! :oops:

    Thanks LP.

    To see them is all that matters. To have a camera at the same time is just a bonus...
    Get yourself over here and we'll take you round the lakes and rivers and find some for you.
