Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

I returned to the same location a few days ago, this time with the proper tools. Both Kingfishers showed up at about same time as my previous visit, after a good hour waiting I was alerted by the sound and had plenty of time to photograph and study them.

TS102 scope + MC14 (~1000mm) as the perches they seem to prefer are around 20m from closest point offering a narrow sector with free line of sight. EM1 with electronic shutter to mitigate shutter shock as the light conditions forced me to shoot at 1/30s.

Not sure how long they will stay around, as late fall and winter eventually will hit us they will almost certainly move to a location offering ice free conditions. I plan to return and try to get some fishing action shots before they leave the location.
