Hi Jose.
I saw this species from far distance only. You are lucky photographer and have an opportunity to take so nice close-up. Superb vertical composition, lovely colours and nice details. Especially legs of the bird are looked funny. Great footwear. My compliments and best regards.

Hi Jose
not a Kingfisher but maybe the King of fishers (and the devil for fishermen)
it's definitely a beautiful bird and a great conservation success too

Buena foto Jose, a resaltar la pose tan buena y la silueta contrastada con ese precioso azul suave del fondo. Enhorabuena y un saludo.

Fantastic photo Jose! The composition, the pose, the colours and the sharpness are excellent!


A well composed pic with your tight composition here. The sharpness and detail of the dark subject is great. I also like the POV, clear and contrasting background, DOF and lighting in the image.

Bonjour Jose,
Très belle attitude du sujet et splendide lumière valorisant bien le jabot du sujet.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hallo Jose
Absolutely a pleasure to look at, enjoy and appreciate your photography once again. The colours are vivid and beautiful, the detail captured excellently and the presentation is tops. A striking image. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
