Domien,
Wonderful shots of those kingfishers. Very impressive imagery, very impressive lens, and the photographer's not that bad ......

Thanks.
I took over 600shots
Still sorting them out,
Feeding, preening, sun-bathing, everything passed.
And don't forget the waiting. I was looking outside for three hours, not seeing any bird.
Finally, it worked.
I'll add some more shots later.
Be yourself; everyone else is already taken

Domien,
With Gustav (@ijsvogel) having 'left the building', you've certainly stepped up and more than filled the gap with these stunning images of kingfishers. Remarkable detail in these wonderful shots.
Looking forward to seeing more.

Thanks a lot for your remarks en comments.
One last set: relaxing and fishing

A spot in a tree


Preening, to kill the time


Look out for fish


Caught it


Kill it

Too bad, I made the wrong choice in the balance between noise and shutter speed. I'll keep that in mind for next time.

Eat it


I'll make sure I'll do this again
I never came home with so many sharp kingfisher shots

Wonderful series, great story-telling, and remarkable shots.
I don't mind the motion blurred action photo of the fish being stunned.
Looking forward to more.

That's some cracking shots!
And to me the "kill it" shot wouldn't have the same impact (pun intended) if it wasn't for the motion blur! Having seen my local kingfishers do the same move plenty of times it's lightning fast and vicious, the shot perfectly demonstrates just that!
