Collared Kingfisher with a Crab at Kata Beach Phuket Thailand

Jul 22, 2012 | Animals & Wildlife

Not my best bird photo but considering it’s a Kingfisher I got to post it. I always have such a hard time photographing these birds because they are so skittish. To be honest this is probably my best Kingfisher photo to date! This shot was cropped in at about 25% so I was pretty far away. On top of that I was using my 18-270mm kens. The reach is okay but it’s nowhere near the 400mm that I’m use to using.
