For my first post of the year I wanted to have a splash of colours….
lots of colours 🙂 🙂
Yes, I made a washing line 🙂 🙂 🙂
Common birds amongst flashy colours, different……
yep, it is “on” I was in the woods last Sunday. I love this time of year. Mist, cold, lovely…..
This spectacle is not to be missed.
ps: the good news is that I was able to get away from my kingfisher hide!!! 🙂 🙂
Sunrise is always magical……
Mist is also spectacular….the atmosphere it create…
Remember, it doesn`t always need to be big in the frame 🙂
lots of chasing ….
Yep, I have change the setup. This morning, I had three hours spare so I went to my hide and had a go at it. It the only way to find out what is wrong with the setup. They are a few things that I have to change.
For a first go, I was quite pleased with the results.
This bird has got a bullhead in his bill.
A few action shot
And to end, a bit of Arty farty… 🙂 🙂
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…
