Malachite Kingfisher

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.

      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

      This was shot in 2010 with a Panasonic FZ-35 bridge zoom.
      There were 8 ducklings the rest became cat's dinner and these 2 were saved and are now grandparents
      I was too lazy to find a larger size.

      This is a Black-capped Chickadee seeking shelter in the apple tree in our Minnesota backyard.  These little guys are always fun to watch and always seem happy.  This one ducked into the apple tree for safety, likely after seeing me point my E-M1 mk11 and 300mm f4.0 his direction, shot at ISO 1600.

      It is the season for baby birds here in Minnesota.  During a walk around White Bear Lake last weekend my wife and I heard the distinctive sounds of hungry young birds, and sure enough I spotted this little Downy Woodpecker poking its head out waiting for dad to feed him.  We went back to the same White Birch tree two days later, and the little ones had already left their nest.

      I just finished with my trip to the Skagit River Valley in northern Washington State.  I came for the eagles and they did not disappoint!  The Skagit River as with a few others have now plenty of dead Salmon, having died after spawning.  So it is like a buffet for them.  These are just a few.  All taken with the Nikon D500 and Nikon 500 f/4E, FL, ED, VR lens, and all taken from a boat which made for a challenging shoot.

      I have been quite busy of late with workshop clients, but thought I would post a few from this past weekend.  The first birds that really start nesting this time of year in Florida are the Great Blue Herons.  The colors and additional feathers really make for great photography subjects.  These were taken with the Nikon D500 and Nikon 300 f/4 AF-S, non VR, lens, handheld.  I am off in 10 days to the Seattle area for three mornings of eagle photography down the Skagit River.  This time of year with the end of the salmon run hundreds of eagles gather for the feast.

      Had some free time in the morning on my birthday, so I went to a local park.  Was greeted by many birds, but the Heron gave me most excitement.
