Stork-Billed Kingfisher

I've been following this bird for over a week. It has enthralled me and inspired me to improve my skills in taking action shots.I have also photographed it preening itself after a dip in the pond.Here's a shot of the bird with its catch between its beak. It will thrash the fish on a tree branch till it is tenderized before it swallows it. Real awesome stuff to watch but you have to have a strong stomach. However, my skills at photographing it catching its meal aren't quite up to scratch yet but I'm working on it.
