I really like your pictures, candyman.   :)
Thank you Click  :)

+1  Based our one Belted kingfisher I had no idea they could be so colorful and almost beautify - a slight nose-job and they'd be up there with the hummingbirds! ;)

Wonderful series!
Especially the second photo - great shot!
The last one also very nice. Usually the sit higher up. Not often you catch them low on the ground. I have one where the kingfisher is walking on the sand.

Belted Kingfisher (Port Hardy, Vancouver Island)

After three visits to Canada, I finally have a good picture of a belted kingfisher.
