A superb composition JP, with rich colours and great eye contact. That bill's a whopper! Many tfs.
 
A beautiful capture of this magnificent kingfisher. Probably the most common kf in SEA and in India.
I was pretty excited when I saw this kf for he first time. During my trips in SEA did I see so many that I did not capture them anymore. LOL.
