Again today morning.

The white-throated kingfisher (Halcyon smyrnensis) also known as the white-breasted kingfisher is a tree kingfisher, widely distributed in Asia from Turkey east through the Indian subcontinent to the Philippines. This kingfisher is a resident over much of its range, although some populations may make short distance movements. It can often be found well away from water where it feeds on a wide range of prey that includes small reptiles, amphibians, crabs, small rodents and even birds. During the breeding season they call loudly in the mornings from prominent perches including the tops of buildings in urban areas or on wires.

Hi Biswarup,
I like your White throated Kingfisher a lot because it's an "unusual" shot from behind and somewhat below, the sun behind you. Good ! In this way the brilliant blue colours dominate. The only small problem is the focus which is not on the eye. Thanks for presenting the wonderful bird. Greetings, Dietrich
