Behind The Lens

Location
Photograph was taken Guernsey, Channel Islands
Time
This Is one of my Favourite Birds. Hard to capture also many hours waiting for the right moment, The wife was in bed so as always I left with camera in hand at 6:45 Am. The sun was just breaking the tops of the trees, when I got ready to sit around for a few hours,Then the Kingfisher flew in amazed by the bright colours picked up the camera started to shoot photo's of it flying between 3 perches. The Kingfisher was around for about 15 mins then flew off again.
Lighting
The lighting was just right as the sun broke through the top of the tree's and shining across the pond, with light just covering the top of the branch the kingfisher was on.
Equipment
Camera: Canon EOS 1100D With an 50-500 f/5.6 sigma lens. No other equipment
Inspiration
I used to do a lot of diving, and my wife brought my camera for my birthday. so she started off my new hubby I found a spot so sat there for a while with my camera watching other birds flying around. then this guy just flew in.
Editing
Post-processing was just lift the exposure up a little and a spot of contrast.
In my camera bag
Canon 1100d 50-500mm sigma/ 28-90mm canon and some camouflage netting, tripod
Feedback
make sure you have some camouflage netting as this is a great way to hide. and the down side is when you have found a spot were you think the kingfisher is you might have hours too wait.
