This is the 2nd Kingfisher bird I took a photo.
I was amazed to see this bird far out of it's natural inhabitat – just in the middle of town with no water reservoir in the surroundings.
My previous post on the Kingfisher, was on the banks of the Yarkon river , and it location is far more than 3km, in flying distance from where I took this picture.
2 WS attached.

Super, super groovy idea and execution. Leonard Cohen sang the song;,, Bird on a Wire '', but the insulators there was nothing. I like the color composition and minimalism. Focus also very good.
רעיון נהדר, מגניב וביצוע מעולה. כהן שרה את השיר,>> ציפור על תיל <<, אבל מבודדים לא היה שום דבר. אני אוהב את הרכב צבע המינימליזם. פוקוס גם טוב מאוד.

very good sharpness on the kingfisher, a surprising and original photo with the power lines in background, beautiful colors,

I like the composition of the kingfisher bird, in a non-natural environment such as electric cables.
Fantastic colors and light.

very interesting combination and contrast of
"kingfisher and blue sky" and "kingfisher and blue insulator",
the blue of kingfisher looks melting in other blues...
but really it is kingfisher, it is rather suggestive,
thank you for your precious shot of natural bird in human world,

Poor bird, playing at dangerous high voltages...
Nice picture, a little fringe at the bird.

Prijatno vece, Paja.

Have a nice evening, Paja.

i discovered in your gallery a cousin of the Kingfisher from your last upload photo Pied Kingfisher,this one with almost black appearance.That i was meaning writing in morning, to take a photo of a bird with a clear background and without other elements to abstract the glance of the viewr.Well done.
Have a good day,danos

I like this composition, I think is interesting the combination of the bird and the electric device, the blue tone is also a good element, well seen,

How nicely this kingfisher bird is sitting on this electric wire and curiously looking at the blue insulator. The colors and sharpness are very good. The blue sky makes a nice background.

Trois belles images de ce bel oiseau au bec rouge et son cou blanc, bien resorti sur le fond bleu, bien vu et réaliser

The lone bird perching on the power line makes a nice contrast to the technological artifacts around it.
