I've never had much luck photographing Kingfishers. Until today. Despite rolling with the waves from a passing jetski, I managed to keep this guy in the frame and the R5 just locked on...like glue.

Nice shots, Henry.

Very nice...guess you weren't joking about all the eagles around you. You got eagles like I got seagulls...:confused:

Lucky you! Where I'm living the news for some seagulls around are spreading like fire and all birders are running there. Forget the eagles! And I'm living on island in the middle of the Pacific:mad:!

A couple of osprey from last weekend. Not too many of these guys around any more, wish I could follow them to South America for the winter. :) Outings like this make it easier to look at the empty spots in my bag where the 7D2 and 5D4 used to live - I've finally stopped crying over them. hehehe.

A bird hide in one of the nature reserves was open today, subject to the English Covid restrictions. Sitting there with a surgical mask on, as required, and my glasses steamed up, a bird shot past high up, barely visible through the fog. Got a quick shot and on getting home discovered it was a juvenile Peregrine Falcon, a bird I very rarely see in flight. Here it is, upscaled 2x.
