Belted Kingfisher...

This is a really cool looking bird, the Belted Kingfisher. Unfortunately I only got to see two of them and they were both to far away to photograph well. Although not the best photo I really like this bird so I decided to post him anyways.

Kingfishers always look top heavy with their big heads and massive beaks.

This is an excellent photo, due to most people don't ever get a photo of one. Congrats!

I don't know why but I have never found a trusting kingfisher. They always keep their distance & I keep hoping that one will slip up and allow me to get close :)

Good shot Brad of a difficult to photograph bird.

Much better than anything I have of them.

I have always found them too shy. Hopefully one will make a mistake sometime and I will get the shot of a lifetime!
