Seeing one in the first place would be a first for me but in making the image, I will always have these in mind.  Superlative shots.

And mine, I see Kingfishers on a regular basis and I have a Sigma 150-600mm, which on a cropped lens is almost 960mm, I need to be closer... The Kingfisher I see is female - you can tell as the bottom part of the beak is red/pinkish..... They can also hover, like a Kestrel, it's the first time I've seen one do that....

All fantastic, but that second one is a real prize winner. 🙏

Never seen one in our area Geoff.  Whereabouts do you see them? (or is it a secret 😄 )
