    This is a wonderful photo. What an interesting looking kingfisher with rich and beautiful colors.

  • Hi Jane and thanks — these are real characters — noisy and gregarious — but hard to get a good shot as they are usually overhead – dave

    Now I’m the one to be jealous David. I have been trying to get a kingfisher shot for 3 years. Of course, our kingfisher’s are not nearly as exotic looking as this one you got . . . Great Shot!

  • Hey John – -there are some very exotic looking Kingfishers in Asia — I onlygot photos of two this trip. Used to have lots of belted kingfishers in the west — sometimes they would let me get close enough for photos – dave
