Kingfisher
Infos from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Kingfishers are birds of the three families Alcedinidae (river kingfishers), Halcyonidae (tree kingfishers), and Cerylidae (water kingfishers). There are about 90 species of kingfisher. All have large heads, long, sharp, pointed bills, short legs, and stubby tails. They are found throughout the world.
The kingfishers were traditionally treated as one family, Alcedinidae with three subfamilies, but following the 1990s revolution in bird taxonomy, the three former subfamilies are now usually elevated to familial level; a move supported by chromosome and DNA-DNA hybridisation studies, but challenged on the grounds that all three groups are monophyletic with respect to the other Coraciiformes; which leads to them being grouped as the suborder Alcedines.
Kingfishers live in both woodland and wetland habitats.
Kingfishers that live near water hunt small fish by diving. They also eat crayfish, frogs, and insects. Wood kingfishers eat reptiles. Kingfishers of all three families beat their prey to death, either by whipping it against a tree or by dropping it on a stone.
The Old World tropics and Australasia are the core area for this group. Europe and North America north of Mexico are very poorly represented with only one common kingfisher (European and Belted Kingfishers respectively), and a couple of uncommon or very local species each: (Ringed Kingfisher and Green Kingfisher in south Texas, Pied Kingfisher and White-breasted Kingfisher in SE Europe).
Even tropical South America has only five species plus wintering Belted Kingfisher. In comparison, the tiny African country of The Gambia has eight resident species in its 120 by 20 mile area.
The six species occurring in the Americas are four closely related green kingfishers in the genus Chloroceryle and two large crested kingfishers in the genus Megaceryle, suggesting that the sparse representation in the western hemisphere evolved from just one or two original colonising species.

Hi Sebnem

This is another wonderful capture from you!
Just like in your previous post, the pose of the subject is really terrific nad this time this fluffed-up kingfisher look great!
The details and colors are wonderful, the BG is nicely isolated from the subject and the composition is lovely, with plenty of room in the direction of the bird sight.

Bravo and TFS

I like so much the POV and the way it makes seems their beak so large in proportion with the rest of the body.
Nice the colors and patterns got on their plumage.

Hi Sebnem, I never see this bird before this evening, thanks, fantastic colors, wonderful details, great sharpness, as your usual very well done, BRAVISSIMA! ciao Silvio

Merhaba Sebnem composition is great nice pov and good low angle. It's a sharp shot nice colours I hope one day I will get a nice Kingfisher shot :-) tebrikler selamlar Necip.

I can see that the wind has ruffled the feathers of this kingfisher, Sebnem.
The cute little thing is just sitting on the rock, seemingly undecided about what to do next :-).
As usual, another unusual picture from the very versatile Sebnem!
You are looking somewhat down from your point of view while taking this shot, so this is kind of new perspective in shooting a bird -- different from the normal 'bird-on-a-branch' type.
Great shot!
Thanks for sharing it.

Hi Sebnem

A lovely capture of this wind-blown little kingfisher. A penny for its thoughts though. Maybe he was contemplating the possibility of joining you inside the protective environment of your vehicle to be able to escape the wind and the elements.

The composition is splendid with the bird sitting snugly on the 1/3 vertical axis. The OOF bright BG does well to enhance the darker subject and make it stand out well. The colours are rich and the details are well captured and defined. This was a challenging exposure with the white rocks and the darker bird, but I think you succeeded admirably in balancing the lighting.

Well done and TFS.

Hi Sebnem, this shot of yours reminded me of one I got just yesterday of a Kookaburra (which is just a large Kingfisher). Mine went swimming which I had never seen before, and after he had this same ruffled look as yours. I like your composition, you have him sitting there, almost looks like he's shivering, and you've kept the water in sight. The shot is sharp with excellent colour and detail. Your notes are excellent as always, and I appreciate the inclusion of your exif data.

Thanks, John

Hi Sebnem.
Nothing else to add... except for my deep love for birds, so I'm mad about this beautiful fluffy kingfisher! You have a really impressive gallery and this makes very difficult to chose...but why chosing if we can have a look to all them!
I see you usually work with the 500 mm... Easy to use,light? And advise? I'd like to buy a telezoom for bird "hunting" but not easy to choose... Marta
TFS,Marta

Bonjour Sebden
Cette photo est incroyable. Elle est techniquement parfaite (netteté, lumière, couleurs, composition des plans et cadrage). Cet oiseau solitaire face au vent compose une scène qui dégage beaucoup d'émotion.
J'admire l'ensemble de ton travail, qui comporte un grand nombre de clichés de très grande qualité.
