Flight of the Kingfisher. You've likely heard the wonderful music of Rimsky Korsakov's "Flight of the Bumblebee." Well, this tiny bird is only a bit bigger. It's fun to watch him hover like a helicopter and then dive bomb a fish for dinner. I was VERY LUCKY to catch him in flight with the help of a very fast lens I was renting over the holidays.
