|A difficult situation against a bright sky. I had to work a bit on it.|
The stork-billed kingfisher (Pelargopsis capensis) (formerly Halcyon capensis), is a tree kingfisher which is widely but sparsely distributed in the tropical Indian subcontinent and Southeast Asia, from India to Indonesia. This kingfisher is essentially resident throughout its range.
This is a very large kingfisher, measuring 35 to 38 cm

This s a beautiful bird and nice specie that you captured in good composition, details and exposure.Regards Sigi
You have presented this picture quite aesthetically, Pierre.
This is a unique species of Kingfisher we do not see here in north India.
very good picture with good details and nice composition
Yes, difficult situation, no doubt. But color looks natural. A common species in our yard, just next to pond. Please try to avoid man made things.....
Thanks for sharing,
Regards and have a nice WE,

You managed quite well considering you had to deal with such harsh back lighting. Colors are vivid yet natural and focus is very sharp. Even with the bright back lighting you still managed to capture a tad bit of catchlight in it's eye. Nice work!!
