Daily Kingfisher!

I am reasonably pleased with this shot of a Common Kingfisher taken today in the local rice paddy at about 5:40 pm in the embers of the day. Very poor light and ISO 200 used which is the maximum on my Coolpix P5100. Hopefully one day soon I'll get some decent shots in the middle of the day when it will be interesting to see if I can get a better capture! I am also reasonably pleased with this very common Cattle Egret shot in similar conditions.

In both instances I managed to get the aperture fully opened with a lot of vignetting in the frame and have cropped this away. This is the way forward! I hope to bring you some new birds in the next few days!
