Hi, Dilshan. Amazing clarity of the bird especially the eye which is in perfect focus. Your strategy worked in getting this well composed shot of the beautiul King Fisher resplendant in is natural colors. A good explanatory note and a special treat. Cheers.

I love the focus you have achieved in the eye of this colorful Kingfisher, Dilshan!
I myself tried many times capturing Kingfisher in Tokyo, but could not get 1% of the quality you have shared in this shot. The sharpness and POV are excellent, and colors are natural.
Very well caught!
Thanks and regards,

How far was this kingfisher?..must be very far away however you managed to have good details on its facial feature while its body has a little motion but the framing is nice and light is amazing.

Hi Dilshan, Love the vibrant colours you captured here, plenty of detail in the feathers too. Sometimes I think any of the kingfisher family likes to pose. Fiona

Fantastic shot Dilshan. What patience and hard work to capture this beauty in sharp detail and spectacular color. Magnificent dof and blurred bg. Perhaps the best of your kingfisher shots. We have no kingfishers that colorful here, and the the ones we do see will not stay still for even a minute. I am so envious. Really great job. TFS, Lori

Très beau portrait de ce Martin-pêcheur avec une belle posture qui permet d’appréhender la disproportion de la tête et du bec avec le reste du corps.Belle lumière et beaux détails.
Merci pour le partage.Amicalement.Catherine
