Fishing kingfisher

October 8th, 2016

The female kingfisher in these images spent 2 hours fishing, and managed to catch 8 fish in total. On one dive she even came up with 2 fish in her beak, you can see why they are called king-fishers. Despite being quite a breezy day she was not put off by the wind blowing her feathers and did not affect her fishing ability. It was difficult selected these 12 images of this beautiful female from over 600 shots such a photogenic bird.
