[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The small malachite kingfishers are found on inland waters where it perches over low overhanging vegetation.It then hunts by diving from its perch into the water. The image is not very sharp due to low light and its high speed.

Hi Erwin,

This is wonderful shot and shows your hard work to capture this one. Very much appreciated.


Hi, Erwin. This is a difficult photograph to capture this lovely kingfisher. The colors came out very nicely and the composition looks good in the natural setting. Very well done. Thanks for sharing.

the only one thing as you mention is lack of light. I wish you good light next time..

Hi Erwin,
It is quite difficult to take a picture of these birds when they are flying and you have done it wonderfully well. TFS
