That is gorgeous! I just caught a picture of a kingfisher here in North Carolina 2 weeks ago. He wasn't as pretty as the one you got!

Yes exactly right Emma, these were taken where he was on some branches overhanging a stream that the dogs and I were walking along and he just appeared out of nowhere, I was very lucky because these are notoriously hard to 'catch due to their speed etc

Wow, cool bird! Is this a male or female, do you know? That's one serious beak, too. I'm going to have to google what they sound like, I imagine they sound kind of like a crow but I really have no idea. Never seen one of these.

Wow Graham! I love these birds, we see them often on our river/stream walks. I can't imagine catching one on film....they fly low against the stream, almost skimming it. And I believe the ones I've seen are Belted Kingfishers, gray and white, so even harder to see.

Don't they look like little cartoon dwarf birds with oversized bills?

Your pic is just stunning :)

My camera isn't anything fancy, it only has a 10x zoom, so this is the best I could get of him. Not nearly as beautiful as the ones you took!
