Great shots!

Just for information, how far was the bird? Cropping?

I always try to shot on a distance for minimal cropping. In this case I was about 4-4.5m away from the bird, in a hide, which is set up in the river. I like to work on closer distances, so that's the reason to shot FF+400mm.

Fantastic hide, but I have to ask, how long did you stand there waiting for the bird to appear with a fish? (However, long it was, it was worth it!)

And here it is. First photo taken by my wife. Terrible light in the livingroom. Impressed with ISO! This is the face of a happy new owner.

Congrats and welcome. It is a ripper of a camera.

Thank you Annie. I waited around 3 years. In previous years I had the kingfishers only few times, but always without fish. This one I was lucky to take thousands of pictures of them with different kind of fish. But I spent around 3 months being there almost every day. Some days were great and some very quiet.
Here is a picture showing the environment of "my" kingfishers with the stick itself, I took yesterday.

And a video I made if the weather was not good enough for pictures.

Well, all I can say is that you deserve some recognition a) for your patience and perseverance and b) for the amazing images. I wish I had 1% of your patience and your skill.
