I remember this particular early evening was one of my best experiences of wildlife photography.
I was sat motionless on a riverbank in full camo gear waiting for this this beautiful young Kingfisher to arrive. During the few hours I was there, I saw a grass snake swim by and a fox on the opposite bank who was aware of me but not spooked.
I watched this bird fishing for 5 minutes or so about 25 metres away. I could see he was intrigued by me and being a curious bird flew straight towards me. I was looking right down the lens at him as he got closer and closer. I glanced over the camera in amazement when he actually landed on my lens for a split second. We were both startled and he flew off screeching.
You may not believe this but it actually happened.
Such a fantastic memory.
