I have been after a picture like this for a long time….
Yesterday morning I was back with “my” kingfishers. During the night the temperature went bellow zero. it was cold. They was lot`s of ice everywhere.
It was amazing to watch and to photograph a kingfisher fishing amongst ice.
I wanted to photograph the kingfisher without any distraction…
It was ice cold , but that does not stop the kingfisher to hunt….
At last, we had a frost. Minus 4 last night.
They had forecasted a beautiful day, and for once they were right! 🙂
I did not want to miss the ice….
Here are some picture of kingfisher fishing amongst ice….
It was misty and cold ….
But the kingfisher has got to eat, whatever the weather
Amazing to see that bird diving amongst ice….A first for me.
Perched on the ice….
I went to my hide this morning. it was very windy. I don`t like the wind. The wind seems to spoke everything as it create a lot of noise.
But “my” kingfisher was not phase by it…
This kingfisher perched on a tiny little branch. I could not believe it !!
A classic Kingfisher portrait
This female had dry mud on her bill. Digging or checking a nesting hole maybe ??
I was going cold turkey…so I had to go to my kingfisher `s hide for a few hours. It was very windy this morning. But the little tyke still turned up….
WHAT A BIRD!
Autumn is here , colours are changing
Black Bryony are everywhere at the moment. I like the colour of those berries
A bit of action
Another session at my hide. Cracking were there all right, theme for the day Crabapple
It`s a cracking bird…magnifique!
In this country, you do have some strange habits. Dogging is one of them. The farmer is persuaded that I use my hide for sex! I Don`t!! but I think that he does!!
He does talk about dogging all the time. Should I worry.? I think I should. When I went inside my hide they was cleanex all over the floor and some strange substance too. I wonder what that farmer is doing in my hide! Think I am going to hide a camera in the hide! 🙂 Watch this space…
I have found this on the entrance of my hide…. weird…
I am completely mesmerize by kingfisher…. 🙂 🙂 🙂
I think that I am going to build a permanent hide. Like that I will be able to photograph them in any weather….(I am using a canvas hide at the moment)
The Fruits season has started
A bit of fishing too
I love the colours on this picture….
Flying away with the prize….
