Hi All,
Here is one more picture shot in our same old 'adda'(our usual Place for photography) at Dayanand's form house.This was my first experience of shooting Kingfisher!!
I was so much excited by seeing the bird in my view finder that I just forgot to shoot some of them.
This is one bird which I admire for its best color.

And once again thanks to Dayanand for this opportunity.....:)

Thanks in advance for your feedback.....

Here is some information on the bird...
Physical Description
Kingfishers are not much bigger than a house sparrow and are very brightly coloured. They have bright orange underparts with a white bib. The wings are bluish-green and the back, rump and tail are bright blue. The kingfisher’s head is blue with orange marks in front and behind the bird’s eyes, and a white mark on each side of the head. The legs are short and orange in colour. The bright colours are most obvious when the bird is in flight. Males and females are nearly indistinguishable, the female can, however, be distinguished by the orange coloration on the lower part of her bill. The wings and tail are relatively short, and the bill is long and pointed.

They live around streams, slow-flowing rivers, ponds and lakes.

Kingfishers hunt for fish in rivers, lakes and ponds. They perch on a favourite branch near to water and watch out, with their keen eyesight, for a suitable fish. When a fish is spotted, the kingfisher will dive, beak first, into the water. The kingfisher has to rely on memory to predict where the fish will be after it has entered the water and will sometimes return to the surface with a stone in its beak if its prediction was wrong. After it has caught a fish it will fly back to its perch with the fish in its beak. The kingfisher does not eat it immediately and instead will beat the fish against its perch to kill it and then consume it head-first. Kingfishers will regurgitate pellets containing accumulated indigestible material such as fish bones. These are very helpful to scientists who are studying kingfishers as they contain evidence of their diets.
