Belted Kingfisher

As you can probably see looking through my photostream these Kingfishers are one of my favorite birds to photograph. Not only are these beautiful birds but also are a challenge to shoot while flying. After having my Canon 7D camera for a few months now and learning its capabilities I am finally getting more keepers shooting Kingfishers. I also use a Canon 400mm 5.6 lens. I will have more Kingfisher pictures coming up in the next couple of weeks. The second shot is a big crop but I kind of like the way his wings are spread out.
