[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I have captured this picture of "White-Throated Kingfisher" from window in our house and it was sitting on a dry Mango tree, just above the pond. This picture was taken when Sunlight appeared early in the morning.
In BG it's the pond, just beside my window. This Kingfisher was jumping into the water and coming out with small watery plant on its full body. I was watching its activity....

* White-Throated Kingfisher is a tree Kingfisher, widely distributed in Asia from Turkey east through the Indian subcontinent to the Philippines.
* This is a large Kingfisher, 28 cm in length.
*Adult has
.A bright blue back, wings and tail.
.It's head, shoulders, flanks and lower belly are chestnut.
.Throat and breast are white.
.The large bill and legs are bright red (But here in my picture its color looks pale)

* Sexes are similar, but JUVENILES are a duller version of the adult.
