kingfishers are 'ere

Backyard Kingfishers are back. heard them hammering away at a termite nest.

Thought i'd set up the camera just in case they flew in during the Bathurst 1000 car race.

Well knock me down and call me Attenbro, one flew down into the bird bath while i was setting up.

   Shortest photo shoot ever, all done from the kitchen. go figure.

Gympie, Qld.

Magnificent shot, beautiful bird. I stumbled across a pair of kingfishers today. Got a shot or two before they flew off (from abt 12 metres away, with 400mm lens). Beenleigh, Qld.

Congrats Greyson, yes they are an elusive and treasured species for sure.

Birders the world over seem to go crazy over 'em.

Have a special spot for kingfishers. Especially Azures as they are so small and flighty. They are all cracking pics!
