Whenever I see something I have not been lucky enough to get before, I take a quick shot just so I can have one. Then after studying it for a bit , seeing if it is relaxed, tense, moving through , whatever I can then look around as to ways to make the shot better. In this case I did not like the tree just to the left of the kingfisher or the duck house to the right. Yes , they tell the story of the environment I was in. But not the type of shot I was looking for. SO I looked around , and moved.
Trying to save up now as I want a 1.4 and a 2.0 teleconverter. To bring those distant, small subjects closer. This was about 100 yards away
