Saw this Kingfisher species on the banks of the Vaal River, South Africa. They are widely distributedacross Africa and Asia.

    Very nice capture!

    I don't know where I'm going, but I'm going anyway.

    Luck happens when preparation meets opportunity!

    Just returned from Botswana and was treated to several shots of the Pied Kingfisher! Here is link to a shot of one of these birds hovering over the water (unfortunately did not time the shutter to capture the bird entering the water): https://guyfleischer.smugmug.com/Africa/Okavango-Delta/Avifauna/n-zbxRFG/i-NT6f8qV/A
    And my advance apologies for listing a link and not the actual photo, but is seems I am not authorized to upload photos at this time.
