Awesome SEO !!!

Thanks for the comment. I love those head-on opportunities.

I surely do like that one. Very nicely done, Dan.

Glad you enjoyed it. Thanks for commenting.

Truly wonderful. What an amazing site. Never see anything like that here, unfortunately.
Effortless in flight and yet so focussed.

They are pretty cool birds to watch hunting. Thanks for commenting.

I love the birds you folks have down under. First trip down there I managed to shoot 30+ species I'd never seen. OK a few such as oyster catchers were very similar to home though technically different species :-)

Haven't noticed any Kingfishers on this thread. I expect there are some, but anyway, here are a few of my meagre attempts.

This shot was of a bird rushing past in pursuit of an interloper, probably one from her last brood.

Here is one coming up from making a catch.

Here is one where they are having a battle. It is over territory as usual.

And finally a shot where I was maybe a bit too quick as it has only just left the perch. But, hey, you get what you can and have to be thankful!
