The kingfishers started playing a new game today. There are two fishing trees, or trees that the kingfishers like to fish from, and I positioned myself between the two after the incoming tide chased me from my usual position.
My new kit means that I am less mobile, so when I set up for one direction it is not easy to swing around and capture what is going on behind me.
I am sure the kingfishers worked that out quick smart. Every time was I distracted, they would dive in front of me and I would miss the shots. When I was focused and waiting, one would dive behind me, creating a distraction so the other two could dive before I was ready again.
If it happened once, it happened a dozen times and got to be rather frustrating. I didn’t achieve the shots I wanted today but there is always another day. A couple of birds will not get the better of me!
