... or perhaps, breakfast, depending on your perspective.

This morning I heard the rattle of a belted kingfisher in our Massachusetts back yard, so I grabbed my camera and took this series of photos as he munched and crunched his breakfast. :p

Good action series. Looks like the photos have a lot of noise, probably from a high ISO.

Correct. I was using ISO 3200 at f/8 in order to freeze the motion. I could have used f/5.6 at ISO 1600, but then the lens is softer. The distance to the bird was about 80m, so I had to do some significant cropping.

. Hard call sometimes, but I think using f5.6 and a better iso would have been a better choice. Maybe you can run a noise removal on these. Good to catch the action though.
