Very natural shot showing the beautiful Ringed Kingfisher in its environment. Looking at your WS, it seems that this area of Costa Rica is very rich in various bird-species. I like your choice to show the bird in a generous composition.
I send you all my best wishes for a Happy 2010

Ook dit is weer een erg mooie foto van een mooie vogel.
Lijkt me wel apart om al die bijzondere vogles te vinden en zo te kunnen fotograferen.

A fine looking kingfisher and a first for me Laurens, your inclusion of the immediate surroundings into the composition made this also an ecologically significant capture. TFS it MF.

Some day maybe I will see a Kingfisher for myself. This one is so special with the beautiful red, white and blue colors. Fine details of the face, eye, beak and wonderful feathers. A very nice pose on the branch surrounded by the pretty leaves. I love the other two pictures in the workshop as well.

This is a beautiful and exuberant bird, here in Venezuela also exists, but I never could get a good picture of it. The environment is very natural, light is accurate and appropriate for the stage.
I wish a Happy New Year 2010 to you and your whole family.

Weer een mooie bijdrage uit Costa Rica. Je ziet deze soort veel in Midden- en Zuid Amerika. Goede contrasterende kleuren en een uitstekende compositie.
De allerbeste wensen voor 2010,
