[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hello friends in TN,

I was out looking for macro subjects and butterflies by the foot of a hill and spotted this kingfisher with a good catch of freshwater crab.
I think this is white-throated kingfisher (Halcyon smyrnensis). In Malay, this bird is known as Pekaka Belukar/Dusun/Ungu .

Thanks for viewing!

Hi Jusni,
I only spotted a few kingfishers once at a seaside. It was so far away and taking a photo is out of question. You had a good timing to record this action. TFS,

A great capture Jusni!
Not only of the White-breasted Kingfisher, but of his land-crab catch. The sharpness and natural colours are excellent, as well as the composition on the branch against the OOF natural BG.
Great to view!
Thanks and best regards,
