04/14/18 Belted Kingfisher

Posted: May 5, 2018 in Uncategorized

This Belted Kingfisher tormented me for months (lol), flying up and down the estuary out back, always fleeting and almost impossible to photograph. I decided to set up my camera near this perch with a long range remote. Sitting on my deck about 200 feet away, I waited. After 90 minutes … look who showed up. He actually stayed in place long enough for me to get over 100 shots. This will probably never happen again.
