Belted Kingfisher

Belted KingfisherBelted Kingfisher, Beaverton, Oregon, 9 December 2011 by Greg Gillson.


I've tried before to take photos of kingfishers hovering and diving and fishing--all without success. This photo, my best yet of this action, was a quick shot for "practice." Five seconds before I depressed the shutter I didn't even know I was going to take this photo!
