    You have my respect those Kingfisher shots are Outstanding and I know how hard they are to come by.

    I bow to the Master!!

    The gagging series alone will have made your nights in the blind worthwhile and these are just icing on the cake!

    Grrrrrr......:mad: 

    After seeing these Ray, I wonder if I shouldn't take the K-F off my list. I'll never top these. :eek:  :biggrin:

    Super shots. :smile:

    That K-F is super. I've been trying to get one for a couple of years, but all I get to see is the wrong end!
     
  9. Superb!!!!!

  10. thanks so much everyone! I agree.. the kf is a tough bird to catch.. that's why i took over 400 shots of this one when it came to visit me for 45 minutes!

    Frank and I were discussing these images early this morning. We both decided that these would be hard to duplicate so we just quit. :biggrin: Outstanding images!
     
  12. Ray it simply doesn't get any better than these. Great KF shots.
     
  13. thanks guys.. Andy.. never quit! i spent the last 2 summers wishing for a chance like that, and I am sure I would never get a chance without the hide.. just find a regular kf perch, and set up the hide with the light at your back!

    I went back to this place 2x since these shots were taken and got skunked.. so it isn't a sure bet.

    take care.
     
  14. Great shots Ray! The kingfisher is outstanding. I'm very jealous!

    Best,

    Jose
