Great series Rick!! My favorite is the kingfisher, however; the eagle is just as compelling.

Good shootin'

That's the shot Rick! Every time I see a kingfisher in that position I wish I had something like a 300 f4 on. Just perfect!

Nice series. Like them all but especially the Kingfisher. I wasn't able to get even one shot of one this year before they started heading your way.

Great shot of the kingfisher Rick, great pose. I've seen these hang around up here until the ice forms on the pond and streams.
