Hallo Zeno,
Mooi frontaal licht op deze ijsvogel. Mooie vage achtergrond ook. Goes van scherpte en een uitstekende compositie.

Bonsoir Zeno,
Très belle publication finement détaillée et délicatement colorée.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Beautifully captured. I never knew about this Malachite kingfisher ( new to me).The body is small like common kingfisher in India, but beak red like white throated kingfisher.I am not sure if it is found in India.Thanks for sharing
