07/25/18 Belted Kingfishers

Posted: September 8, 2018 in Uncategorized

Belted Kingfishers are one of the most elusive birds to photograph. But, thanks to my friend Ed, who has graciously allowed me access to his beautiful property, it is sometimes possible. A stream runs along the edge of his property and the Kingfishers love to fish in it towards the end of summer. I have spent endless hours in the blinds that he set up. Some days I come up empty; some days I’m rewarded. But, either way, it is always a peaceful day. 101 1-D4S_6944a1mL1100

They hear my camera shutter.

That’s me … obviously a slow day.
