New Zealand Kingfisher by Robyn Carter

Currently unavailable for purchase

Young New Zealand Kingfisher.

This was taken at the Bird Rescue place in Auckland. Cat got this one, but it was feisty and recovered and returned to the wild.

The blue background is acutally a tshirt, not the sky!

    He is so beautiful. I love kingfishers and have quite a collection of images. I am so happy he is recovering.

  • They’re pretty hard to capture at the best of times – I was lucky with this one :)
