A fresh photo from today. My first Common Kingfisher photo at Treknature. Hope you like this.

Canon 40D + Canon 400mm f/5.6 prime lens

In a camouflage I waited all day from sun rise till down. There was one Kingfisher in the area and it visited my stick only three times. Five times it dived for fish but only two times it was successful. It was a semi-cloudy day so I was lucky when Kingfisher came last time, sun shows its face.

Perfect predator-prey relationship caught in focus under good natural light with a simple, neutral BG, forming a very nice composition.
