  • Kingfisher with Dragonfly Larva

    Taken yesterday, this Kingfisher obviously doesn't mind prickly food.

    Thanks for looking.

    Always a pleasure, you just get better and better ! Love the water droplets on the feathers.
    The picture tells the story, great when you have a bad memory.DW.

      Another excellent and interesting shot Dave. I wonder what sort of dragonfly it would have turned into?

        that's a cracker of a shot and different from the usual fish.

            That's a stunner. The kingfisher looks quite grumpy!

              Thanks for the very positive feedback David, it makes posting the image worthwhile.

              Much appreciated.

                Thanks Ron,

                I think it was either an Emperor or a Hawker.

                Looking at the size of the larva, I'd guess Emperor.

                  Thanks Mike,

                  We were very fortunate to see the birds feeding on a variety of things.

                      Thanks for taking the time to look and comment John.

                      Perhaps the grumpy look is because the food has a crispy coating?

                              My thoughts precisely.
