Stork Bill Kingfisher

I was abandoning my morning trip and heading home when I heard a bird call. I followed the call of this bird and found it sitting on a branch trying to weather out the storm on the bank of the river. In this shot it is all round and fluffed up in its rainy weather gear.
I just can't get luckier than this, for when I went back again in the late afternoon. I found it again literally on the same branch as I was heading back over the bridge to head home. This time he's all slick and shiny and all business as he was hunting for his dinner as the tide came in. I just love this bird for the rich colors it possesses.
