Black-capped Kingfishers are back to Byram ( a mangrove coastal area at Penang, Malaysia). This species of Kingfisher migrates to this area every October and stay here till March next year. Black-capped Kingfishers are very shy and tend to fly away when she spots you approaching from far away. Thus, it is very difficult to get decent close-up shot.
I was lucky to find this "fella" resting at a tree branch after she has eaten a crab. My body and gears were partially block by mangrove vegetation thus she did not notice I was nearby. I made over one hundred shots of this "fella" with the Canon 5 D mk II and EF 600 mm IS F4 lens. The subject was under the shade so I had to "bump-up" the ISO in order to avoid motion blur. I shot with ISO 640 to 800 in the aperture priority mode.
Thanks for viewing.
