Ringed Kingfisher

I just got back from a short trip to Costa Rica. I'm still going through my pictures, but here's a ringed kingfisher to start with. There's no real sense of scale in this picture, but this is certainly the largest kingfisher that I've ever seen - according to Wikipedia he should be about 40cm, which even bigger than I remember him (that's getting on for half a meter - I think he'd need a sturdier branch). An impressive kingfisher anyway.
