Red-backed Kingfisher

Red-backed Kingfisher
Comment:A favourite shot from this year. I was so lucky to find this bird relatively low down and on a natural perch. It was further away than I would have liked and a closer approach was impossible. I had to wait for some time for it to turn and reveal its eponymous back to me but the wait was worthwhile. I'm also pleased with the way the background colours echo those of the bird.
