Last week I was at a local pond with various interesting birds. While I was watching Mallards and Canadian Geese, a Kingfisher paused, and dove in for lunch. Thanks to my wife informing me, I managed to catch the hovering. I'll return there to refine my skills. Kingfisher Hover.gif

Nice gif!
Thanks, AlanF! Not wanting to trespass, I couldn’t get any closer. The cropping needed accentuates the grain in the image. I probably compressed the gif more than needed also.

The "cool" birds are mostly gone now, so I work with what I got. These are part of my 24mp simulation experiment. DISCLAIMER - my use of the word experiment in no way implies that I am doing anything remotely scientific! Lots of ducks at the park, flying in, flying out, swimming a while, being generally noisy and frequently making me laugh with their antics.

Mallards, mallards, and more mallards

Yet another few heron pics, but with sun :cool: underneath the wings

At the same moment a friend that was joining me asked me if I could also get a plane.
To prove I made this shot. Just afterwards I realized that it was the plane of our local football/soccer club :ROFLMAO:
