I sat by the bay taking pictures of cormorants and more unaware off to my right sat this Belted Kingfisher with his freshly caught lunch. I took a few pictures then patiently waited for him to swallow his lunch or fly off with it still in his beak. I waited and I waited all the while peering through the viewfinder.
Finally he turned, to look at me I suppose. "Something is going to happen."
Then he turned again and I waited some more.
By now I am getting a real kink in my neck scrunched down in the car seat resting the camera on the window. He turned back to his original position and resumed just sitting there.
After about 20 minutes of this I gave up and moved on down the road.
