Belted Kingfisher

I told myself at the end of last summer that I would shoot this fellow over the course of the winter. No such luck. I've heard him up and down Valley Creek a hundred times since then, but I couldn't get near him. One year later, the most wary of birds lands right in front of me unawares. The sound of the shutter caused him to raise his crest, I believe. Look at that jaunty expression!
