[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This Pied-Kingfisher is the 3rd type we have in Israel.
It's scientific name : Ceryele rudis.
When fishing it hovers above and dive swiftly into water - than emerges as quickly from there : you may see my previouse post, when it doe's it. And one more pic. on TE .

Hi Ike,

The bird is well placed in the frame. the point of view is showing the details and colors of the Pied-Kingfisher. The morning light is enhancing the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.
