As a general rule,I always have my camera in my camera bag. I leave the lid unzipped but closed. If I see something on the fly,I can shoot it within seconds!
Thats what Happened here. I saw this Kingfisher sitting on top of a pole & shot it while planing! Not a easy thing to do.
I slowed & circled but by the time I turned,the little bugger had taken off! They are such flighty little birds!
