Indigo-banded Kingfisher (Alcedo cyanopectus) by alabang, on Flickr

The Indigo-banded Kingfisher (Alcedo cyanopectus) is a species of bird in the Alcedinidae family. It is endemic to the Philippines, where it is a generally uncommon but locally common resident of the northern and central islands. There are two subspecies, the nominate race, which occurs on Luzon, Polillo, Mindoro, Sibuyan and Ticao, and A. c. nigriostris, which is found in Panay, Negros and Cebu. It forms a superspecies with the Silvery Kingfisher of the southern Philippines.[1]

The Indigo-banded Kingfisher feeds on fish and aquatic insects. It perches on rocks and overhanging branches and foliage and dives steeply into the water to catch its prey. Once caught, it returns the prey to the perch where it is beaten and swallowed. Little is known about its breeding behaviour, although it is known to nest in tunnels dug into the banks of streams and rivers.[1]

Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical dry forests and subtropical or tropical mangrove forests.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Get a new camera every 150,000 pictures?
« on: December 09, 2013, 02:39:21 AM »
I'd get a new camera everytime I "need" a new one. All four of my bodies are 4ish years old. If I start shooting as frequently as once a week I may upgrade all of em to the next bodies Canon will release.

Lenses / Re: Patent: Canon EF 300-600 f/5.6 w/1.4x TC
« on: December 07, 2013, 08:11:30 PM »
300-600 should weigh about 3kg. Would sell between $7,300-11,800. I'd love to see a EOS body that can AF at f/8 at more than 1 AF point.

If you scroll down there is a patent for a 600/4 with built in 1.4x TC. Should weigh about 4.1kg. Would sell for north of $13,500.

Patents are probably filled to deter other manufacturers to make such products in the future.

Should weigh about 3kg,

Will Canon be selling bodies that can AF at f/8 other than the center AF point?
