Photo of the Month July 2022 Kingfisher

The photograph of the month for July 2022 comes from my recent workshop to Zululand in South Africa (Read the Trip Report). Photographed from the ‘lagoon-hide’, early in the morning when there was still a gentle fog rising and the light was soft and ethereal. This was a photograph I had envisioned when I first saw the potential perch for a bird. It was my hope that I could frame the bird looking into the frame. When the Pied-Kingfisher first landed, it was facing the wrong way (I still photographed it), but had to wait for the moment when the bird turned, looked into the frame and provided the right gesture to complete the frame.
