Another capture of this small but brightly coloured kingfisher at the Singapore Botanical Gardens on a Saturday afternoon. There were several others, mostly with tripods trained on this bird which was busy fishing under his perch on the reeds. Filtered to remove some noise especially in the green area.

You must be proud of this one, the coclors are shining everywhere.
It is well placed in the strong corner with place in front of him.
Have a good week

The vivid colours are fabulous and the sharpness is outstanding. You managed a good DOF and a excellent composition. Well done.

Hi Murray. I love these birds, we often have theme around home though not quite as colourfull and very camera shy! Excellent capture, good sharpness and detail and pleasing colours. Thanks for sharing.
Have a good week, Paul.

Hi Murray, this is superb. nice close up. Colourful and neat...and knowing how they fly away...must have also been difficult to let her pose for you!

The kingfisher is well place in your composition. The details and colors of the bird are clear and precise. The intensity of the lightis enhancing the colors of the scenery. Well done, have a nice day.

Hi Murray, A very nice capture of nature & beautiful sharp colours, excellent DOF & well framed, I had a nightmare trying to get a photo of a Kingfisher near my brothers home in the south of England & it still got away, TFS kind regards Wilson.
