This was the closest I've ever gotten to a kingfisher. I had spotted him prior to hitting the trail, and it wasn't long before that familiar call told me I had been spotted. I had seen the fallen tree that it had been in, so I just went to the tree, set up my tripod and camera, and sat......for 10 seconds! It landed right in front of me trying to make out what I was and even let out a call! It was a very exciting moment, and oddly enough, it posed for about 15 shots or so before flying off and providing one more alarm call.
