[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Pied Kingfisher Ceryle rudis is a rather large Kingfisher breeding in colonies. Many birds followed the boat to catch fish in the boat's engine turbulences.
Some where so close that focussing started to get difficult.

Frozen in flight and aligning the sink looks like a missile on some unfortunate fish. Purity picture, wonderful photography. Another great shot, Tom.

Hello Tom,
A photo of this Pied Kingfisher to be proud of. Fantastic sharpness, details and very beautiful natural colours. Perfect composition.

Wow, what a superb capture of this never-seen-to-me kingfisher, Tom! Outstanding sharp details, wonderful POV, magnificent lighting, excellent composition, and brilliant natural colors. It looks the bird was just above your head when shooting, but usually a kingfisher flies very low above water when fishing. So how did you take this pic?
Thanks and regards!
