Great shot Fred. I admire that you are comfortable with MF.

Well done Fred for catching one especially with a MF lens too. They normally don't stick around long enough for me to manually focus (or I am just terribly slow with MF )

Now that you have got your first one, it can get addictive very quickly

Fred is now ready with his wish list

But, well done, bit jealous. I have seen this bird only in a fly by, without gear around

Thanks Addy, but no, it was not from a hide. In that case I would have had better gear for birding. This is a serious crop from the original. I just noticed the bright blue colour in the bushes during a walk in a quiet area. I was happy it didn't fly away immediately

Kingfishers are on the wish list of a lot of photographers- so well done.

I assume it was taken from a hide? Probably it was as easy with a manual lens as with AF - unless the camera has a bird-AF setting.

Basically, well done

It took some work in PP, but I am fairly happy with my first decent kingfisher shot today, shot with a manual focus lens
