Great shot on this Brownhooded Kingfisher. The big zoom does a great job on the isolation. Spot on exposure. excellent colors and detail in the plumage. I saw a few Kingfishers on my recent trip to Florida but did not have enogh lens for shots like this.

Thank you for sharing this beautiful picture of the Brown Hooded Kingfisher.
This birds beak really intrigue’s me. If a witch’s hat was not black, I would have said it looks like the old lady on the broom’s hat. But definitely on the wrong place. If the bird would tilt his head just slightly the hat would be on the right place. Ok let’s leave it there, maybe some other members think I am Cookoos.
I enjoyed reading your notes regarding this bird, and I could see clearly that the bird just had a bath. I also can’t help to see and compare this bird with a little naughty boy, that enjoying splashing in and out of the water.
Thanks for sharing. It was a good one.

Very nicely shot image of an appealing bird that has his feathers a'ruffle. Colors are natural appearing. Best wishes, Lamar.

What a wonderful kingfisher. So sharp that every feather stands out! I love the colors and the pose.

a very well executed shot Willem. I can see the light conditions were harsh but still you managed to get a well exposed shot. well done! actually the fact that this guy is soaked in water makes the pic more interesting, poor thing looks very cold! TFS!

Willem, Hierdie vogel het baie fraai "pecker"!
What a pecker on that bird eh! I'm glad I am not a pisces in the waters where he spears!...
I like the composition of "cornering" the bird along with the PoV that makes me feel of being almost level with the bird...
for good contact. Tfs, J.
