Common KF - Portrait Pose by garion Common KF - Portrait Pose by garion
The Common Kingfisher (Alcedo atthis) strikes a majestic and regal pose on its perch. This is an adult female. Around this time of the year, they migrate from the Northern hemisphere to warmer climes closer to the equator to escape the winter and the cold, to hunt and feed, mainly on a diet of small fish, before they begin their long flight back north to breed.

Fullview for the best results.
