Kingfisher & Swallows

Kingfisher & Swallows

A collection of wildlife photography images of the New Zealand sacred kingfisher (kotare) and welcome swallow (warou). The kingfisher is one of my favourite birds to photograph. The NZ sacred kingfisher has adapted to a wide range of habitats from open fields and parkland, streams and creeks to coastal rock pools and wetlands. They tend to congregate along the coast in Autumn and Winter and then move back inland over Spring and Summer.

These images are all available printed on canvas or aluminium or as stock photos in jpeg format.
