Kingfisher in the Rain Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner
Kingfisher in the Rain
Kingfisher in the Rain
As it has been raining all day I went out to try and make the most of it by visiting my Kingfisher site hoping to get some decent shots of the Kingfisher in the rain. He only visited the perch for a short period of time, but just long enough to make some "rainy" shots..

Out of all the birds I have photographed the King Fisher is the hardest. Very nice shot! Great Job. The fact that you were out in the rain to get this shot gives you extra points in my book.
