Eisvogel/Kingfisher (Alcedo atthis)

Today I was able to watch my first Kingfisher since around 18 years, thanks to T. Diehl (, who told me a spot where I would probably find one of these flying jewels.

Well, I did. Thanks again ;)

I had to crop pretty much until I was happy with the size of the bird in the pictures, but for my first shots of a kingfisher I'm pretty happy.
