As you may remember from a much earlier post, I have a nemesis bird in South Korea called the common kingfisher. Although I have seen this bird numerous times subsequently, both in Korea and Taiwan, I have never been able to successfully photograph it. Such is the nature of the beast, so to speak. Kingfishers as a general rule are very wary of humans and require a lot of patience and equal amounts of luck to photograph.
While still not perfect, this image is definitely a huge step in the right direction. Take that, nemesis bird!
Good progress on photographing the kingfisher Pat. You are so right about Kingfishers in general being wary of “us”. I made some progress myself last spring and summer, photographing our local Belted Kingfishers. I’ll have to look back to see if I posted some of those.
