Another cracking time with the blue arrow this morning.
Tomorrow I am changing the whole setup. I want different picture.
One last shot inside the water…..The water in the river was opaque this morning. Really bizarre….
Yesterday after lunch , I went for a quick recce. I came across three roe deer..it was a cracking moment. It`s the roe deer rutting season at the moment and they are bomb proof…
Lucky to have two male…
I came across another one in a long grass covered meadow
And this is the missed shot…the deer was running past me ..but too close…shame that white patch in the sky…
Third round on my kingfisher setup…
Few dives shot
This time , I have try to take some under water picture. It is not easy…I need to try something different.
The speed is always incredible. my eyes cannot clock what happening. Only the camera can tell me what`s happening under water. Amazing
The Kingfisher is probably one of the most charismatic bird in Britain. Incredible colours and bad tampered! 🙂
I wanted to photograph kingfisher fishing. So I setup my own hide . Yes, I could have dished out £ 150.00 and go in one of those paying hide thing..
But I wasn`t interested. I wanted to do my own thing. I like to setup my hide , go on recce etc…
It just take some time. But the reward are extraordinaire, if it works of course.
Boy did it work! At the moment, I have four different birds. They are chasing each other, fishing, fighting, calling etc.. . It`s amazing to watch ….
These pictures were taken in two photographic session. This is a work in progress of course …will see what happened next…
I got a kingfisher on a perch and I was very happy
The next challenge was to get the bird in flight…not easy…
I was over the moon with those pictures but I wanted more…
This male is going down like a rocket. the speed is amazing
Coming out of the water with his prize.
Just before eating his prize
