Kingfishers

I got lucky today. Just as I got to the little river, before my classes started, these two arrived as well. They were having a very serious and somewhat heated discussion about something.

Then they left again.



Although these birds are called Common Kingfishers, they are not very common around here. Today was only the second time I've seen any.

Really lovely birds and terrific action shot. A lucky omen for you on the this day.

Cool, though it's a pity that gun hunting is illegal in most areas....

What Tabor said. Except about the omen. I didn't know that seeing kingfishers meant good luck.

Look at them. Its obvious to me that they're yelling something about fish :P
