Gotcha.... by thrumyeye Gotcha.... by thrumyeye
Kingsfishers are extremely fast and they don't actually tell when they will be landing and where....
But it seemed like a nice challenge to try to capture the moment the kingfisher landed on the branch with the wings spread and a fish in his mouth....
And guess what: I got him...! :dance:

This is such a gorgeous photograph. The beads of water clinging to the kingfisher's chest just make the shot in my opinion.
