Hi Jose,perfect capture of this colorful kingfisher,one of the most beautiful birds and one of my prefered,magnificent pose and the usual top quality of sharpness and exposure.Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano

Hello Jose,
How can one go wrong with a subject as gorgeous as this. A masterpiece of an image which is filled with beautiful colors and outstanding detail. The plumage of this kingfisher is stunning to say the least and the good eye contact is a real bonus. Just a slight bit of noise in the BG which can easily be removed.
