The image is slightly cropped for composition reasons.Is this a 100% crop or is it the whole image ?
I did not see the distance scale. But each time as I approached the kingfisher, I will take a few shots along the way. It flew off before I am able to get a real close-up shot.it would have been nicer to see a closeup of more detail of the kingfisher - I guess this was shot from pretty far away ?
Thanks for the compliments. Me and my buddies are still learning. It's all hardwork driven by love and passion for nature/nature subjects. In general, the more time we spent in the field perfecting the craft, the higher chance we will be rewarded with nice images.Been very impressed with yours and others photos in this forum - hope to emulate you guys someday!
I tried asking the kingfisher to move to the next branch but he has a mind of his own. Just kidding!It is really a pity that the prominent branch is sticking out in front of the subject, kind of distracting to the overall composure.
