Belted Kingfisher at Jericho Park


Belted Kingfisher (male) | Martin-pêcheur d’Amérique | Megaceryle alcyon: I’m glad I was able to capture this kingfisher on one of its favourite perches, but I wish he had chosen to stay a few more minutes, so that he could have turned his head my way slightly more. Hopefully, I can get him or his mate there another time!

Both photos taken yesterday (May 7, 2016) at the pond at Jericho Park in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, with a handheld Nikon D5200 and AF-S NIKKOR 200-500mm f/5.6E ED VR. Not baited, called in or set up.

  • Top: ISO 400 | 500mm | f/5.6 | 1/1000, cropped for composition
  • Bottom: ISO 400 | 500mm | f/5.6 | 1/1250, cropped
