Artist's Description

This tiny (14 centimeters) kingfisher ( Alcedo cristata) is mostly seen as an azure flash at the water’s edge. If one is lucky enough to glide up close in a boat, one gets a few fleeting moments to snap away and home the camera had actually focused on the bird and not a nearby leaf. This one had just caught a water bug.
