Description:
I 2014 I spent many months by the river trying to capture some Kingfisher action shots, this is one of many that I managed after thousands of failed attempts.
For anyone taking bird shots this shot proves that you can shoot quite wide open, this was f/5 and the trade off in Depth of field to give the shutter speed required has enabled me to freeze the action, not forgetting of course that the background is nicely blurred and out of focus too because of it.
