Diving kingfisher

November 5th, 2016

These photographs of a diving kingfisher were taken on a misty day at a small lake. This female is a very prolific fisher but does not catch on every dive. In the first image a fish can be seen escaping in the bottom left corner, but she makes up for it by catching two fish on the next dive. Although these diving shots would have been better in good light, I will never tire of photographing kingfishers even in poor light.
