Incredible capture

Behind The Lens

Location
I took it in Norfolk England
Time
I memory serves me right this particular one was in the morning
Lighting
I like to use diffused light where possible so the whites don't burn out
Equipment
Canon 1DX, Sigma 300mm f2.8, tripod
Inspiration
I have always liked kingfishers and finally I had the opportunity to do so
Editing
I opened the shot in Photoshop and cropped it slightly , then a little noise reduction but that's about it
In my camera bag
Canon 1DX, Canon 1D mk 4 , 600mm f4 and 70-200mm f2.8
