I was on our boat checking duck blinds in a remote spot in the river yesterday; I finally got a nice view of a Belted Kingfisher. We have a pair that lives in our backyard, but it’s nearly impossible to get a picture without being seen. Thankfully, we were in the perfect camouflaged boat; we blended right in. I wish I could have snapped a few frames (and better ones at that) Its difficult to take pictures on a moving boat. This pretty lady was fun to watch, so it was worth it! I thought about cropping, but I love the perch and it shows their habitat, perfectly.
