Hello Zahoor,
Fantastic photo of this Kingfisher in flight. Wonderful natural colours and sharpness. Great POV and composition. Beautiful BG.

Wonderful capture of the bird in action. The plain blue background shows off the bird nicely and the image is beautifully sharp where it needs to be while the slight blur of the wings emphasizes their movement. TFS.

Great shot! The wings opening out like fans look magnificient.

I'm really happy to discover your pictures and this one is really good, in the move with a really good sharpness. Good shot. TFS


Hi again,
I have seen one Kingfisher during my last vacation but it was so far and so shy that I don't have a decent picture. This is an excellent in-flight capture, something not easy to do! Colors, details and exposure are so beautiful!

Fantastic action shot,and excellent bird pose, good use of high shutter speed. TFS
