This is a banner I created last year of a Belted Kingfisher in flight (Ceryle alcyon). I shot these frames off Elliott Bay in Seattle, and layered them in Photoshop to create the composite. In my experience Belted Kingfishers are shy of the lens, but this particular kingfisher male was dipping repeatedly for fish, right where I was sitting and photographing the Caspian Terns last summer.

Individual kingfisher images photographed with my Olympus E-3 and Zuiko 70-300mm lens (f4.0-5.6) at 300mm — 600mm equivalent (35mm)
