Re: NZ Sacred Kingfisher: NEX-7, 500 F/4.5L

A major storm had gone through the estuary where I normally shoot and it was a mess with trees blown all about, broken branches and weed swept ashore. So out with a shovel and sledge hammer to make use of some of the branches. Set a couple up as perches for the NZ Sacred Kingfisher. So concentrating on those this week. Plus I'm addicted to them

A few shots from the NEX-7 and Canon FD 500 F/4.5L, manual focus, hand held, cropped as per normal.

Just cruising

Blasting through after a dive with a small crab

Hovering over its next meal

In for a dive and came up empty

Spitting out the shell and other things they can't digest

Coming back with food

Coming into perch with small crab again

Ready for touchdown

Crab, glorious crab !!

Off for the next hunt

All the best folks and just a few recent shots this week.

Danny.
