Belted Kingfisher with fish

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

I enjoy the challenge of photographing Kingfishers in flight. They fly rapidly, darting around over the water as they hunt for fish. They dive headfirst into the water and grab the prey with their dagger-like bill. I have learned by watching and waiting, that they often will come back to the same perch with their bounty. This Female Belted Kingfisher rewarded me as she returned to the dead palm stump she was hunting from with her fish.
