Lucky old you!!!
I live very close to Rye Meads nature reserve, I've tried for these birds but never had a shot like this. Well done you.
Best Regards, Larry.

All the gear & no idea.

5 hours yesterday and 4 today in the hide lucky me .. but yeah well worth it... this is the best time to see them as they are taking turns to feed their hatchlings. Kingfisher Hide is packed most of the time. The one thing I noticed is that most of them come in with some next level gear but don't stay long enough. May be they get their magic shot the first time I am never satisfied !

Great shot, especially with this ISO and the 2x Teleconverter.
