Searching for a Kingfisher [updated]

Can you see it? It’s really tiny so you have to look hard.. very hard..

Today I went out searching for a Kingfisher – you know that small fish catching bird with those bright colors – in a country such as mine we don’t have many of those colorful birds so we really do care for the ones we have. Now, I never saw a Kingfisher before and today a fellow photographer took me to a place where he’s been shooting one everyday since a month back..

Ingvar Carlsson, bird photographer.

When we arrived all we could find was two swans ¬†– not that bad but still white!!!! Com’on I have a foveon sensor!!!! I want some COLOR!!!!

Ok,¬†enough of !’s and I give you the swan Albert.

All shots taken handheld with the 50-500OS using OS. Shutter speeds a bit on the low side and these would look truly awful if it wasn’t for the optical stabilizer. ISO between 100 and 800.
