Alcedo atthis explosion (High Key Picture)
High Key captures in nature are difficult to achieve, and also not easy to be balanced.
Hereby you can see this wonderful female kingfisher after a successful dive with prey.
NO photoshop, pure white BACKGROUND (now imagine the amount of work to get this picture the way it is!).
This bird had to get used to the gear and the hide for many months!
