Common Kingfisher

Spent a day with wildlife photographer Mark Hancox at one of his Kingfisher workshops on Wednesday. It was a really great experience, not only are you in the company of an excellent photographer who can spend his time teaching you about cameras and settings but he has Kingfishers visiting a variety of perches fairly regulary and fishing directly in front of the hide. The sun was out all day and i really had a great time taking images, i was shooting in RAW for the first time too and think it really helped with detail of my images. Hope you enjoy them!
