Azure Kingfisher

An Australian Azure Kingfisher. Photographed using a portable hide which I set up on the side of lake.

The key to getting photos like this is knowing the species and predicting their behaviour. This takes a bit of scouting and preparation to ensure your hide is set up before the bird arrives.

Thank you. You have to be patient with these little guys. Fortunately they look good from any angle.
