Photographing kingfishers is a challenge. They are shy of humans. They don’t sit still for long, and when they move, they are very fast. Tracking them is very difficult, requiring lots of patience and good luck. This image was captured at the Oyster Bay Shoreline Park on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada.
