Malachite Kingfisher In Flight
Photo By Bryn Forbes

  • Title: Malachite Kingfisher In Flight
  • State/Province/Region:
  • Country: Botswana
  • Description: My reactions nor my autofocus are fast enough to catch these super fast flyers so I would focus in front or behind the reed the bird was on, put it at a high fstop for extra room in the depth of field to get the whole body (and hopefully help my guess). I had to crank the ISO up to 12800 in order to get close to freezing the wings but luckily the Canon 1D Mark IV has excellent ISO. I also took advantage of the high frame rate in order to catch the bird before it left the frame. Taken from a boat in the Okavango Delta with a 500mm lens and a 2x extender.
