My find of the day; a Kingfisher for Camera Critters

Its early , but they're back! A wonderfu sighting in place of the Wood Ducks I didn't find this morning. This is a pond with a lot of potential, I saw two great blue herons here earlier this week. Do you see their pictures? No!!!

Kingfishers are so much fun to watch! I have not seen any yet this year, nice capture.

a garden of thread, for this picture I used a 70 -300mm This is the lens I use most often although I occassionally use a 100-400 IS lens. I prefer the 300 mm as its weight and size is easier to manage . Glad that you enjoyed.

Now that's a beautiful photo of a kingfisher! Usually they are sitting on the wires! My goal is to capture one like you have! ~ks
