It's taken many years to capture a Kingfisher with nice clean light.

Nice job with the light- and a fun perch-looks ready to dive. A real beauty with the rusty markings so clear. Nice work!

Congrats on getting this awesome shot. I agree, Belted Kingfishers are so tricky to get a nice shot.

Well worth the wait, Terry! This is lovely, and the 'I'm ready to dive when I spot a fish', pose makes it look like a little jet plane. Beautiful shot!
