When the kingfishers don’t show…


Yesterday the sun was out so I headed to the inlet with the camera.  I had forgotten how cold the wind can get round there at this time of year so made a mental note to dress warmer next time!    The kingfishers didn’t get the memo again, one flew in to tease for a few minutes then was gone.


Sitting there waiting for the kingfishers I started to look around to see what else was there other than a large expanse of water and it was surprising just how many things I found to photograph in that short space of time.  It is Autumn and the leaves are falling from the trees into the water.  With the sun shining in the right place there are some lovely reflections with the leaves – so I played with them for a while.

There were a couple of Caspian Terns flying about in the distance and I was lucky enough to be watching when one came in close and attempted to catch a fish right in front of me.  I caught some of the sequence but unfortunately wasn’t quite as prepared as I could have been.

I also met up with another Hutt Camera Club member who like me, was waiting for the kingfishers – neither of us got the shots we wanted.  There is always another day!
