Kingfisher at Shapwick Heath NNR

November 11, 2012  •  2 Comments

A truly beautiful day today in Somerset with sunshine and only a light breeze and perfect lighting for the two kingfishers frequenting the reed bed and trees in front of Noah's hide today.  I couldn't decide whether these two were friends or foes - there was a lot of chasing around going on.  I still can't believe just how fast they are.  The shot of the bird diving was at a shutter speed of 1/3200th sec and it is still not perfectly sharp.

Look at my kingfisher gallery for some more pictures.
