Spring Kingfishers 2015

March 13th, 2015

The images posted are heavily cropped and are not as sharp as I would have liked, but rare moments like this don’t come to order! In the spring when kingfishers pair up the male catches a fish and offers it to the female leading to mating. Most of this activity happens in secluded areas like bushes and is over in seconds. These images show the events of the giving of the fish by the male to the female and mating taking place in the bushes, hopefully this will lead to several broods of young being raised.
