Hallo Erwin,
today we are neighbours; i think about the ID that this is a Pied kingfisher (Ceryle rudis), a good and not easy capture from a frontal POV with great timing, a very nice dynamic composition
Best regards

Hello Erwin,
great capture on the fly. Very nice moment you have grasped. Compliments, Paolo

Hello Erwin
it's a very good picture for a subject in movement, i like the POV and the wings position, lovely composition and good lighting
Have a great WE

Hello Erwin,
Beautiful photo of this Pied Kingfisher, yes that's it, wuith prey. Very nice frontal POV. Good composition. The frame is a bit to heavy for me.
