Kingfishers

                                               The male going down with his eye on a fish.
                                                         Coming back up empty handed.
                                      While the female entertained me with some aero-acrobatics.
I must apologise for the past week I've had trouble replying to and making comments. I hope that I have got it all sorted out now.

  1. Nice set of pictures. Always a good day when you see a kingfisher (of any sort!)

    If you are interested you could join in with a group of fellow bird bloggers who link their blogs to mine in a 'link up' called Wild Bird Wednesday - which runs on my photo blog on Wednesdays (!) to Saturdays. At present about 50-60 link up. You would be more than welcome.

About Me

My photo
Evacuated during the second world war to a village in Yorkshire where I lived in the home of a good photographer for more than five years who taught me the basics and a great deal about nature. Well past retirement age I have been a wildlife photographer for more than 30 years. Red Kites have been my speciality for much of this period. I did spend several years snapping wheelchair athletes and organizing the British Road Race Championship. In the year 2000 I was awarded a distinction by the Royal Photographic Society for my portfolio on wheelchair athletes. Most of my pics are digital, using Sony cameras and Sigma lenses. I used to spend many weeks each year with friends in Wales which is close to the Elan Valleys where I got many of my raptor pics. I now get these pictures more closely to home, specially red kites and peregrines. I support my pension by selling my pics, cards, coasters, fridge magnets and key rings etc. at craft fairs, something I wish I had done much earlier in life. I give illustrated talks to clubs and societies on wildlife and other branches of photography that I have been involved in.
