Great picture Lee. One of the best close-in pictures of a Belted Kingfisher that I have seen.
Great job--excellent focus--great color. And such a handsome male.
Thanks for sharing. It made my day.

> I have tried for years to get a good Belted Kingfisher photograph, but these birds tend to be skittish. This year I tried something new: I attached a CamRanger unit to my camera and set it up remotely on a tripod. The CamRanger creates a wireless network that allows the photographer to control some of the camera's functions remotely, including exposure and focus, when connected to a computer, iPad, or smartphone. In my case I used my laptop.
