Sandy-in-Alaska-100x-100These small birds with their large heads, long pointed beaks and rapid flight are incredibly challenging to photograph in flight. On a trip to Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge last fall I watched several of these little speedy fliers zip around over the water. They are so quick I can why they are called Kingfishers as they swiftly catch fish and dart back to safety to eat their meal.
