Kingfisher Day

Friends, this kingfisher female is either molting or is a young one just getting feathers, she was a pretty good fisherwoman so maybe an adult molting.  I wish i knew more about the various birds, but there is time for only time for so many passions in one’s life, and photography rates higher than birding, oh well, below is another kingfisher in flight, still practicing my flying shots, til Tomorrow MJ

  1. I’ve found that kingfishers are incredibly hard to photograph. They’re skittish and very quick. Nice job on capturing this one!

  2. interesting to see your kingfisher, like yet unlike ours which has blue colouring, not rust 🙂

  3. Margie,

    Make your catch light a tad smaller the next time. jack

  4. Great shots. I envy your close ups.

  5. Follow me and I’ll teach you about birds. 🙂 Seriously, I have found that I got hooked into birding along with my passion for photography. This is a Belted Kingfisher, and you have got some close-up shots here that I am jealous of. 🙂
    By the way, this is one case where the female of the species if prettier than the male. The male doesn’t have that rusty colored belt.
