"Follow the Leader"
Judy Royal Glenn Photography
I found this King Fisher at Memorial Park and was very excited! I have only had one other occasion to photograph a King Fisher, and I was too far away to get a good shot.
The King Fisher reminded me of a tendency hummingbirds have.....perching on favorite branches. He had two branches that he perched on regularly. When I walked up, he was on this branch. I did not see him and scared him, so he flew to his other favorite branch.
It then became follow the leader. He was the leader….I was the follower. He left this branch, but I knew he was coming back, and I waited for him.
