Belted Kingfisher

Kingfishers are one of those birds that do not sit still for long. They have a wonderful song and can fly at high speed. I cannot count the times I have heard a Kingfisher but never saw the bird. This specimen was a little more cooperative, flying onto a rock, looking up at the tree and then settling into the tree where you see it. It was like it was pointing me to where it would be next, even if it was only for an instant.

      • Don’t hold your breath lol. Maybe some day. I am renting a long lens on May 7, so maybe then. The kingfisher is across the way and I can’t get him with my 300mm lens.

  11. Thank you for liking “Glory of the Grass.” Fantastic photo! 🙂 I like how the cute kingfisher is framed by the branches and leaves. I am glad that it was cooperative, which is not always the case with birds and other wildlife.
