Observation - Kingfisher, male, taking off, Fowlmere, 2013-07-29 001. Description: Nice to see this kingfisher at Fowlmere. When it first appeared, it settled on a branch much closer, but I wasn't quick enough, to photograph it there, damn it! But when it took off, for once having not reset my camera was quite handy when it took off -

Nice to see this kingfisher at Fowlmere. When it first appeared, it settled on a branch much closer, but I wasn't quick enough, to photograph it there, damn it! But when it took off, for once having not reset my camera was quite handy when it took off - setting was 1/4000 second - just what was required when it took off.
