Tracking a local Kingfisher for 7 months

I have dreamt of getting a close-up of a Kingfisher for a long time. Last year a Kingfisher was reported in a small lake near my home, and I was ecstatic. However, it took seven months to study the little birds heaviour before I and another photographer finally managed to get close to it.

We shot a series of photos from our hiding spot through heavy branches, but we got the shots we wanted.

Equipment: Sony A1 + Sony FE 200-600 mm F5.6-6.3 G OSS.
