Fluffy dart

Sometimes, one sits and waits, and that is about the story of two to three hours spent at a hide. On other days, it seems as if one can shoot images that were never possible before. Sometimes, like most of these images, the image has a defect like the wing that is cut off or the eye that is not parallel to the shooting plane. Normally, I would delete three of these images and only keep the clear take-off named Take-off. However, this was such a cute 'fisher, and kept diving off the perch. These are the type of image that often becomes a wish-list image for me, as I would like nail them, without the clipped wings of with the head parallel to the shooting plane. Pied Kingfisher, Ceryle rudis, Bontvisvanger, Zibulo Woodlands hide, Mpumalanga. ~ D3S 55233W
