Malachite Kingfisher

Malachite Kingfisher


These beautiful little birds are fairly common on the river but are difficult to photograph simply because they are so tiny. I noticed that this one was often in the same spot when we went by so I went there yesterday evening and hid within a few feet of his perch and waited. Sure enough he turned up and I got a few nice shots. My camera’s shutter is quite loud though and I was very close to him so he didn’t stay for long…
