Belted Kingfisher

Belted Kingfisher in flight

Viewed 20 Times

One of the residents of the local pond is a female Belted Kingfisher, and recently I observed her in-flight. This is a heavily cropped photo because she was at least 30 or 40 yards away closer to the opposite shore. I also did some heavy noise reduction because I had to shoot at a shutter speed and high ISO to compensate. Kingfishers are tough to photograph and I was happy walking away with this one. I was hoping she’d fly closer, but no luck.

I’ve never even had a chance to photograph a Belted Kingfisher in flight. Your pic is excellent – a tough shot to get. Good job!
