Another hour and a half in the blind yesterday netted a few unusual kingfisher poses; I hope you enjoy them. I was actually relieved when this fellow took off as it was mid-afternoon and the blind was becoming sweltering.

There will be days when you get the shot(s) you missed days, months or years before.

To be that close, you must have put the shirt back on, right?;-)a Beautiful captures, friend, as always. Actually, in the first three, you captured my dog's behavior pretty well-#1-checking the...er...aft end, and the second 2 letting the squirrels know whose boss, behind the safety of the glass door, of course.
Again, well done, Al.

Great shots, love the last two. Kingfishers are a favorite of mine that I don't get a chance to see very often-usually one or two when I go trout fishing with my daughter but those trips are much easier without the big camera.

Thanks everyone; I'm glad you enjoyed these. In the past, I posted a photo of my blind set-up, but suffice it said my perches are 25-30' out from where I'm shooting. I usually end up with side or back lighting, depending on the hour, so it's a perfect situation.

I'm the meantime, I'll enjoy yours.
