[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This female Banded Kingfisher was taken the same time as the male from yesterday's post. More often then not I have observed these to move in pairs and seeing one would mean the partner is nearby.

Hi Phil,

What a great Kingfisher showing her butt.
Sharp with crystal clear blue eye.
I have never seen this king, here at Raub, must go to that Bukit Tinggi one day.
Oh.. I need to get that 600mm! :-)

Phil you amaze me. You keep coming up with great, colorful Kingfisher photos. Even though it is photographed from behind it still is an awesome picture. Beautiful color. Congratulations.

Hello Phil,
Great capture of this funny little bird, good composition and point of view, excellent sharpness and depth of field, nice colors and light.

What a beautiful bird. Amazing shot. I dont think they are available in India. First time for me.
