rayhennessyIt's been a while since I've got to spend a lot of time with a local Belted Kingfisher family, this is from last summer and I can't wait for them to come back. This is one of the youngsters from last year who had no fear yet and would sit right in front of me for long stretches before flying away. I've been watching the adult male who stays year round and I'm hoping he gains another partner and has young again, I was able to watch the two adults and two young all interact last season and it would be great to do the same again. I really liked the curious look on this bird's face as it looked at me sitting in my blind. Taken in southern New Jersey. ~ 6/12/16 ~ 1/500 sec at f/4.0 on Manual ~ ISO 1600 ~ at 500 mm using a 500 mm f/4 on a NIKON D4S #beltedkingfisher #birds #wildlife #nature #perched #portrait #close #summer
