I used to say Kingfishers are easy birds to photograph, but for the last few years I have struggled to get one coming in front of my hide regulary. This bird requires a lot of waiting time, but at least appears daily. I really want diving shots into the water, but it is not worth setting up until the bird comes more frequently. Hopefully using the Pro-capture feathure of the Olympus it will now be easy to do. The two flight pictures below were taken using pro-capture.
Two of the shots were taken with the Panosonic 100-400mm lens. The first time I have used it. Optically it is fine, but why would they make a lens mount that only turns 90 degrees. It makes it very difficult to get level horizons. I have to adjust the tripod legs instead of being able to swivel the lens.
