Kingfisher flight

Well this should be interesting, I will be intrigued to hear peoples views on this pic, but first off all I will explain how it came about. I have had a few days off so I managed to get out with the camera a bit, nothing much was happening on the reserve, but while on the way back home I heard the high pitched peep of a Kingfisher as it shot past me downstream. So I waited there hoping it would come back the other way, sure enough after a little while it flashed past again. This was the resulting shot, as I just could not pan fast enough to keep up with it. At first I just disregarded this shot as rubbish, but after looking at it again on the computer and boosting the contrast a little I began to think again,as this was actually just as I saw it, a vibrant flash of blue. So I thought I would post it and see if people liked it or loathed it.


  1. It captures the moment quite well.

  2. I think you're right, Colin. Most of us only catch a fleeting glimpse of the Kingfisher, but they're still great to see.

  3. Sorry I missed your picture of the kingfisher it's good it's almost abstract.
