from a fish point of vue ….
The bird come down like a rocket
Hit the water at a tremendous speed
and come out with his prize
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….
Yes, I was back at my kingfisher hide his Sunday. I had another cracking time with the blue arrow…..This female is quite reliable. I decided to name her Lucie !
Lucie made some cracking move, in water and outside water…
Lucie landing on one of my perch
It was like watching a small blue duck in water … 🙂
Flying away with the prize
A wide angle view of the river…..
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….
Last Wednesday was an amazing day, One of those magic day.
The weather was lovely and I knew that all the farmers of the area would be harvesting wheat. During the afternoon, I went for an hour to see what I could photograph.
It was incredible
The harvest was fully on
The baling machine was baling straw
They were buzzard everywhere, I counted 12 birds.
It was amazing, and I could get close to them too
Here the buzzard is calling
It was nice to be able to capture all sorts of behaviours
Eating a prey
And flying from one bale to another…Beautiful
It was a buzzard day!
Even a Chinese water deer came out…
The weather has been pretty poor recently. This morning was beautiful at last. I went for three hours at my kingfisher hide. I wasn`t disappointed. Two birds were there. Cracking little jewels…
I had a few dive in the river…magical moment of course
I like this shot, a bit arty farty but I like the water above the bird….
The right moment 🙂 🙂
Cant beat a good stretch.
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… 🙂 🙂
