Great result Russell. Well done.
Can't argue with that lens either...in my dreams. Here's our King (Southern Africa) taken with a 500mm f/6.3 in the wild :)

Thanks Richard it means a lot to me. Glad you liked it.

Technically excellent... the trouble with birds is they often look stuffed. Two are more intesting than one.

Now, I have to comment on this. Love the light. Love the BG. Great detail.
I was going to enter my image of the Belted King (even has same green BG) I'm glad I did not because you did an outstanding job. People that never tried shooting this bird will not appreciate this to the full extent.

Gorgeous King Very similar to our Giant Kingfisher. Nice crown (is that Gel? hehe), catchlight, crisp, great BG and pose.

Wow, I've found these guys are very hard to capture. Good job.

nice shot! I see kingfishers all the time in flight and they're just too fast to get a good shot, so don't mind seeing a percher this time round :-)

running out the door so don't have time to vote. If I get a chance to come back to it it would be a 9. Awesome shot. Top 3. Squeezed the vote in :)

Belted Kingfisher, female. It doesn't get better than this. Amazing detail, color, exposure and wonderful blurred bg. I expect this to ribbon. 10
