A tiny colourful kingfisher sitting in the reeds of the pond at Singapore Botanical Gardens. It was fishing for tiny fish but moving too quickly to get a photo in flight. It is only around 8cm tall.

Hello Murray
beautiful shot of this small kingfisher, I like this species of bird but a have never see one in really, only on photos
Your shot is very well composed with nice colors
Have a great sunday

Hi Murray,
This is a nice shot you've got of a kingfisher. You captured it nicely.
Sometimes, I can see some kingfishers and other species of birds here outside our house especially if the vacant lot beside & at the back of our house seems to fill up with water (& small fishes) for many weeks which is brought about by rain.
Sometimes I would really love to capture a shot of them but sadly I can't because I don't have a camera which is used by some professionals.


Long time no see???
Been alright?

OUTSTANDING imagery!!!
Such a tiny, tiny bird. Inspite of the difficulties you were able to register it. Congratulations & TFS.

Hi Murray,

The tiny Kinfisher is impressive. The point of view is allowing us to see the details and colors of the bird. It is well placed in the composition. The light is enhancing the colors of the picture. Have a nice day.
