    Pied Kingfisher

    In this case the Kingfisher landed and sat for a few moments before taking back to the air; a vehicle can act as a form of hide as he landed by us as we were stopped by the waters edge identifying ducks. Taken in the Moremi Game Reserve in Northern Botswana.

    C&C welcomed

    Great image, the B&W works for me.

    Hi Paul, thank you, it works for me to plus swayed by the fact that the bird is also B&W.

    I agree with Paul. The 'normal' thing would be to do this in colour, but by going down the B & W route, the image really throws our attention, I think, onto the shape and structure of the bird and the patterns on the body.

    Hi Donald, I must be learning as that is how I see it. Many thanks for the input.
