What a beautiful bird, you capture all your birds so clearly. He must of been just posing for you, also love how the background blurs. Just a lovely blue and all the details in his feathers.

Oh, I look at them like at an abstract masterpiece :D Well, I like to look in this way at birds to be honest :D
By the way, kingfishers always looks like they are very young, I guess that's because their head is quite big comparing to the rest of the body. They always look so pleasant, I've never seen an ugly kingfisher, did you?

the only ugly kingfisher I saw was an old fellow by the side of the lake with a fishing rod and the biggest fish :rofl:
