Here is a photo of a Kingfisher in the hide near the beach of Palolem. It was the first time I saw this bird somewhere else that on the "Kingfisher" beer bottles which we find everywhere in India...

Très belle photo malgré une lumière un peu forte. Je pense que tu n'avais pas trop de temps pour affiner tes réglages. C'est le genre d'oiseau qui ne t'attends pas, je crois avoir de l'expérience pour le dire.

Merci pour le partage.

You've captured the kingfisher very well, with a good point of view.
A beautiful bird.

Incroyable, tu as réussi à prendre un martin pécheur avec ton 17-85 ! qu'est ce que ca aurait donné avec un 400mm ;-) très belle image en tout cas



Hi Quentin

Very nicely composed. Good light and perfect exposure. Timimg was spot on and there is plenty of detail. Well done on the sharpness. Great work. Thanks.

Amazing capture, I am so desperate to get one on film myself. Still to happen. Looking at other on TN and yours it must be a great feeling to see such a beautiful and colourful bird.

Great work, hope to see more.

All the best.
