Wow... spectacular! I just watched a photography show on TV where they said king fishers can be very difficult to catch in a photo... your photos are amazing! Larry

In the second photo, the kingfisher looks angry--as though he doesn't like being spied upon!


MOST WONDERFUL

The sky’s a most wonderful thing,
Enjoyed by both peasant and king;
No matter the eye
That sees the bright sky
The proper response is to sing!

This is so pretty and my first time to see this kind of bird. Looks like the beak is so strong it can really scoop a fish so easy! ^_^
