Kingfisher & intro

Recommended Posts

Greetings from Spain,


As much as I looked for, I didn't find a thread/forum for introductions, sorry if I missed it somehow.

Been reading the site for a while now, however, I never dared to share a pic to the forum... I'm an amateur that after years of shooting randomly, found out that birding was an exciting and challenging discipline, the one that really motivated me to target something more specific and got me looking up to the skies more than ever...

 

So here I go, with a Kingfisher shot from my portable hide using a tripod and a gimbal, supporting the D5 attached to the Sigmonster:

Exif are shown in Flickr, let me know if I should include those on the original message please?


Thanks for watching!

KRgds, Marcelo

Hi Marcelo and welcome to the forums! Really nice to have new posters here and what a start you've made! Super shot. 

 

We don't have an intros board anymore, so introducing yourself anywhere is perfectly fine. :)

Hi Dallas & everyone!

Thanks for the warm welcome.

Happy to read that the KF was of your liking, it's one of my favs birds to shoot (although not the most commonly seen in my area).

 

Any thumbrule about the frequency to uploading pics?

Thanks again,
Brgds, Marcelo

As often as you like, Marcelo! 

 

This community is evolving into something new and meaningful, so it is encouraging for me to see members who haven't posted before doing so.

      This is one of those "keep trying" birds that never seem to come close enough for a decent shot. They are only 14cm high and move pretty fast, so I was really fortunate to have this one settle close and long enough for a change.
