Alcedo atthis (European Kingfisher, Common Kingfisher)

This is 5 photos composited in photoshop. This tiny bird was repeatedly fishing (dumb fish) so I shot on each flight. Too bad I don't own a 1500mm lens.


Altitude: 3m (9 feet)
Camera: Nikon D2x
Date: Tuesday, November 7th, 2006 at 4:59 PM
Exposure: 1/320 sec at f4.0
ISO: 100 asa
Lens: 80-200mm f/2.8D ED-IF AF-S Zoom-Nikkor at 200mm
(equivalent field of view of a 300mm lens on a 35mm camera)
With cropping (you see 22% of the image as shot), this lens is effectively a 625mm lens on a 35mm camera
