In praise of the ‘Nearly’ pictures.

I’ve been spending a lot of hours in a wildlife hide. First of all just enjoying being close to a beautiful Kingfisher and taking pictures of it on a perch.

But now it’s time to try for a more ambitious picture and this weekend saw some really near misses. But the Kingfisher either just skirted the focus zone or was going in the wrong direction. But it’s great to get some blurry visualisations of the picture I’m after and confirms it’s worthwhile to continue and try harder.

Hopefully more luck next weekend and also some more sunshine. The second set of pictures were shot at a really high iso.

Kingfisher, Alcedo atthis. In flight, but not in the focus zone.
