    Agreed,

    Jitendra,

    What is the secret?
    Is it to find a spot where you know they frequent/feed and wait patiently?

    Thanks,

    Superb shot. I'm a member at the famous (in the wildfowl world) Slimbridge Widlfowl & Wetlands trust and they created a habitat for kingfishers but the hide is just too far away to get a decent shot without cropping it to death-even the guy next to me with a 500mm prime was struggling. I managed one reasonable shot but the exif shows 28mm so I think I must have digiscoped it-I don't do that any longer. I settled for just watching through binoculars as the male and female were feeding their offspring down the nest hole in the river bank.

    Here it is..Hopefully, I can find a better location one day.As you see,getting a sharp image wasn't achieved... digiscoping requires a different skills set to regular photography and in one magazine I read- 'either do digiscoping or normal photography but not both'
