On this day (June 5th)....................
June 6th 2007.
Ruddy Kingfisher at Onuma. For 2 years a pair of Ruddy Kingfishers nested close to the road around the edge of Onuma. The scrum of photographers sporting $000's worth of equipment had to be seen to be believed, they must have been the most photographed birds in Hokkaido those 2 summers. They must have chosen another site in 2009 though, well away from prying lenses.
I digiscoped this shot, with an ancient 4MP Nikon compact camera attached to a Pentax 65mm scope. I felt a bit embarrassed next to all those huge white lenses................but I know said lenses cost more than the car we recently bought.
