Wow, great shot of the belted kingfisher!

+1  How were you able to pan that guy, it makes me feel hopeless. ;)

Jack
+1   Jack.  Excellent shot.  How long did it take you to get this?
1DIV, 5DsR, M3 and too many lenses to list.
Too much time, too little gear...scratch that, reverse it.

SevenDUser, shot the kingfisher; and yes my question too - how many tries before getting such an amazing shot??

Thanks for the kind words, guys.  @Jack, I don’t use a tripod.  Just have the camera and 500 strapped across my shoulder.  Panning is a lot easier that way.  Holding all of it level while shooting is practice, practice, practice.
