4K Video Of A Young Female Kingfisher (Video)

Facebooktwittermail

Yesterday morning whilst walking the dogs, I spotted a pair of Kingfishers already playing “Kiss Chase” up and down the river. This is a ritual that a mating pair carry out at the start of the breeding season. It’s not even March yet!

As a reminder,you can View All My Kingfishers From The 2019 Project.

Coincidentally, whilst going through some of my photo storage today, I stumbled across a short video I took during a session where I took these 2 shots.

Common Kingfisher (Juvenile Female) - Guarda-rios (juvenil femea) - Alcedo atthis
The Stare (Common Kingfisher) : 📷 Nikon D850, AF-S 500mm f/4 @ 1/800sec, f/11, ISO640

Concentration (Common Kingfisher) : 📷 Nikon D850, AF-S 500mm f/4 @ 1/800sec, f/10, ISO500

It is in 4K resolution and as you will see, she is stunning! You’ll notice her bobbing up and down, this is how they judge the distance to the fish and work out the refraction of light. For example, when you put a stick into water it appears to bend, they have to work this out with precision to be able to catch the fish.
