[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a large kingfisher, 28 cm in length. The adult has a bright blue back, wings and tail. Its head, shoulders, flanks and lower belly are chestnut, and the throat and breast are white. The large bill and legs are bright red. The flight of the White-throated Kingfisher is rapid and direct, the short rounded wings whirring. In flight, large white patches are visible on the blue and black wings. Sexes are similar, but juveniles are a duller version of the adult.

Good composition with more space than the original image but looks sharpness is overdone. tfs.

Hi Daya,

Better than the earlier one, yes you have overdone the sharpness I think.
