I was walking on my lunch hour along the Deschutes River when I noticed this bird on a branch across the river. (Of course, it had to be across the river.) As I got a little closer I saw that it was a kingfisher. This is only the second time in the 15 years I’ve lived here that I have seen a kingfisher. I got a little closer and was able to take a couple of shots of it from different angles. It was still a fair distance away and even with my 300mm lens, it was pretty small. These photos are cropped quite a bit. I tried to get closer but as soon as I did, it flew off. I hope I see it again.
