Grey-headed Kingfisher

Posted by
kiwisa (North Shore, New Zealand) on 17 October 2018 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

This trip was a daily highlight of first viewings for me, and this grey-headed kingfisher was just another bird I had never seen before.

Stunning capture! Thos markings look like they've been hand painted. And the cloudy sky makes an ideal backdrop.
