Hello Tom,
Very beautiful photo of this kingfisher in a great composition with the papyrus. Nice to see the bird in bright colours and the environment in soft colours. Excellent sharpness and a pleasing frontal POV.

Hello Tom,
This little beauty is definitely a new bird for me. What an attractive Kingfisher with vivid colors and a unique headdress. Love the contrasting colors and pretty markings in it's plumage.

Amazing photo of this kingfisher. I hope to there some day....

Hello Tom

Your POV on this Kingfisher obtained his glance on you
but I think if his head would be by its profile, the photo
would be more beautiful, beautiful color tones of this bird, TFS
