Sacred kingfisher today

Tried using natural light today with a piece of shiny galvanized tin a meter square as a reflector from about 14 meters away, by slightly bowing the tin i could focus in a crude sort of way (dob mirror style)

Grouse application, Brad, allowing just that slightly faster exposure to help freeze the subject, nicely done !!
