Shot this last week. A Jackdaw chasing a juvenile Lesser black-backed gull. The Jackdaw was relentless. The chase went on and on.
They were a bit too far away for really good shots, but I thought these were nice enough for the thread.

Terrific flight shot of the kingfisher, Shalu. Great capture. I've been trying to get one in flight but all my attempts have been in vain. This one is a female. I think they are prettier than the males.

Thank you very much, Mike! Yes, Kingfisher is one of those rare birds with more colorful female than male, they are more like people :lol:. As you know, I use the Dot Sight to help, and I got great AF from my gear, so my job is far easier :lol::-P. My friend told me a great location for kingfisher, and it is only 20 minute drive from me. So you will see a lot more KF from me. Here is one from this morning:

Female Kingfisher incoming (600mm GM +2X TC = 1200mm)

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