This migratory Little Fellow (Black-Backed Kingfisher) was here in Singapore for about a week and it flew off last week due to too much disturbances within his comfort zone.
I shot it at about 7 meters away as this BBKF was hiding under some thick lowland heavily shaded bushes while he was looking for food in the late morning.
Due to very poor lighting condition under the thick bushes, I need to use a filled-in flash to have a better quality shot of this BBKF rather than pushing up the ISO or lowering my shutter speed.
This shot was captured by Nikon 800mm F5.6 and Nikon D3s with Nikon SB910 + Harbor Flash Extender.
