I have been longed for a kingfisher at my reach since my days of photographing birds…so I felt it tremendously delightful to find one around my reach in a glorious day of bright sunlight..!
The Kingfisher was found sitting in the upper branches of a divine tree which stood very near to me . Immediately I collected my camera with the prime lens and stood atop a sidewall near the tree ,about an angle of 25 degree aiming the branch ,it was a great thing that the bird was still there on the branch ..I took 2 ,3 shots and held down the camera and waited a little..but the bird had remained there for me for more shots again and I went on with nonstop shooting so as to get enough poses of the bird in different angles and statures on the same branch… That wonderful day of my union with the kingfisher I got bright pictures with awesome contrasts and the experience was eternal…but I yearned for more ….more close views of the bird…meanwhile I got the bird on some lesser bright days in closer views but in less contrasting range…anyway the pictures were rather close ups than the series shown above.
The bird in the evening shades of the dusk was quite picturesque even though the shot is less sharp and the tones are brown;the brownish tints of the time enables the frame to have the finish of an oil painting of classic touch!
By the completion of another year ,I found myself fortunate enough to have the wonderful bird on my way ahead and so close to me that I was capable enough to get more shots in closer looks with more fine details….for which I pray the bird forever…!!
