Strike while the iron’s hot

Like the Sacred Kingfishers, currently feasting on a smorgasbord of fish, skinks and cicadas, I’ve been trying to make the most of photographic opportunities with these charismatic migrants. Trying to capture them in flight, a sharp image at least, is an exceedingly difficult – one that I suspect I will never master.

  1. Lovely images Geoff. They are great to watch. I have a pair in our garden at the moment and I’m also trying to capture them in flight.

  2. Fantastic shots. Can I use them to parent please? Sue
