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.
