I captured this Oriental Dwarf Kingfisher in the morning under a heavily shaded branch where this little fellow was looking for his prey on the ground.
I have been trailing this ODKF for a few years and I was very lucky to spot this ODKF this week after waiting for him to come out for his prey for about a week .
Photo was shot by Nikon D3s with Nikon 800mm F5.6 ED-IF AiS + Nikon TC14B teleconverter.
Photographic Tools was sitting on Manfrotto 526Pro Fluid Head with Manfrotto 536 Pro Carbon tripod.
