[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

For this shot I had some luck that the kingfisher had changed to my riverside and came quite close. I had to change the hole of my camouflage tent and I was afraid that he could notice me, but he stayed without any interference.



Bei diesem Bild hatte ich Glück, dass der Eisvogel kurz auf meine Flussseite wechselte und ziemlich nahe kam. Ich musste noch die Öffnung von meinem Tarnzelt wechseln und war etwas besorgt, dass er mich bemerken könnte, aber er blieb dann doch ohne jegliche Beeinträchtigung ganz ruhig sitzen.

Ciao Helmut, great capture of lovely kingfisher with fantastic colors, splendid sharpness and fine details, very well done, my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

I like the wind ruffled chest feathers of this little fellow, Helmut, captured from rear perspective.
With its head turned, the entire bird is presented in a beautiful posture.
The colours too are rich and attractive.

Herzlichen Dank!
