    Just so you see that photos can go totally wrong - this was the ONE and ONLY time in ALL my life that I have EVER seen a kingfisher (last summer, off the boat, on the banks of the rivers round Berlin), and my ONLY photo came out like this :irked: ...

    [​IMG]

    After that, the boat had passed and we were gone.
    No chance to take one other pic to try and get a better one.
    Hmph :er:

    It really does mean a lot to me when people of your calibur post photos like these. I feel like I may yet have a chance to start capturing shots the way I would like.
    Thank you for sharing this Corinna :)

    I have seen Kingfishers several times, but never when I have had my Camera with me.........

    ........ That is until I spotted one on a beach in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt, about two years ago. I quickly focused, composed and shot three pics before it flew off. However, in the only good shot that I got it was sat on top of a beach umbrella. There were no verdant green riverbanks for a background for that little chap! I guess that shows you that you should always look out for the unusual...
