Common Kingfisher with fish

I had always seen images of kingfishers with fish in their beaks and admired them. Finally after quite a long wait, i have managed to get atleast a decent image of a small blue / common kingfisher with a fish. Hope to better this soon!! :)

  3. Sometimes you can't get the bird to do what you want in the pose. I have the same problem with birds of all kinds always doing something cute when I don't have a camera but nothing when I have a camera.

  5. That's a real beauty. Are you from Coorg by any chance. Your name rings a bell in my mind. Since I have spent 3 years in Coorg I love the place always.
