Kingfishers breeding

June 12th, 2013

I have been following the lives of a pair of kingfishers and trying to capture their more intimate moments. Some of the image quality in this posting is not as good as normal due to the harsh early lighting. To capture kingfishers mating, presenting a fish to the female and a fledgling two hours after leaving the nest does not allow for re-takes on another day when the light is better. This pair produced 5 fledglings all have left and the kingfishers are starting the next brood.
