I rarely get a shot of a kingfisher, they're so skittish it seems but I managed a decent shot of this one that was at distance. I didn't crop much because of that so it's basically an environmental shot. It's not packed with detail but what I liked most is how the branches and bird are in stark contrast with the soft, blurred bg.

Nice shot. Shows off that unmistakeable shape well. One of these is on my bucket list but no many are seen around here.

Thanks, Jeff. I wanted to try but you know how you get that feeling that if you take one more step they're going to bolt? It was strong with this one, they're so skittish.

Thank you, John. I hope you get to photograph one soon.

Wonderful shot! I would have done both the full and a crop to get closer in, but that's just me. Nice composition.
