Woodland Kingfisher

Friday, March 30th, 2012

Before posting photos of my wildlife shots, I always like to read up about the animals and learn a bit about their behaviour etc.  Turns out, while these guys look really cute and friendly, they are heavily territorial and will attack other intruders with force!  Including humans!  They are also a migratory species of Kingfisher and usually fly back to the Equitorial zones during the dry seasons.  We spotted many of them on a recent trip to the Kruger National Park and these are some of the shots.  Taken with my Canon 400mm lens(2 top images) and a Canon 600mm lens(bottom image) which the guys at Arrow Photo gave to me to try out for the week!  Needless to say it was awesome!

Birds

I recently purchased the Canon 400mm lens and it’s amzing, especially with bird photography!  The detail and colors are amazing!  These are some birds I captured with it on recent trips to different Safari Parks in South Africa.  Enjoy!
