Azure Kingfisher

Azure Kingfisher
Comment:I was focused on this Azure Kingfisher as it sat with it's back to me near a small pond. Just before I took the shot it disappeared and in a flash returned with something in it's beak. I took the shot just before it disappeared into the dense rainforest. It was later in the day that I checked the photo and was amazed to see the frog which was locked in mortal battle with the little blue assassin. Note the protective Nictitating membrane over the eye of the Kingfisher as it subdues it's prey.
