Story behind this photos

This are my first photos of the kingfisher! I made them during a 5 weeks practical at the nature reserve 'Centre du Scamandre' in France. I started with ornithology and birdringing at this time and this was one of my first birds which I learned!
For this photos I am really thankful the photographer at the station! He explained me how to get photos. I caught small fish, put them in an aquarium in the water next to a 'tree' and waited in a hidetent for him!
