I've been spending the last few mornings chasing after this beautiful kingfisher. Every time I got close he'd fly to one of his other perches, of which he had many.
I waited for him to take a dive and find some rest on the branch I was closest to, and patience prevailed.
A few clicks of the shutter is all I was allowed before he moved on but I was happy to catch this gorgeous bird at last.
