Comment:The brilliant blues and rufous tones quickly caught my eye as this Azure Kingfisher flew in and perched with a small fish in its beak. From reading the notes in ‘The Australian Bird Guide’ the purple wash on the side and the tiny white tip to the bill indicate that this is a male. He seemed content to sit still long enough to allow a low ISO setting (160).
Equipment:Canon 7D Mark II with Canon 600mm f4/L USM non IS lens at 600mm, 1/400 sec, f4.5, ISO 160 on tripod.
Location:Wonga Wetlands, Albury. (New South Wales)
Keywords:male, feeding, adult
