African pygmy-kingfisher (Ceyx pictus) -best in black!

Image taken at Abuko Forest Reserve, The Gambia.

A tiny Kingfisher which prefers small shaded forest pools where it feeds mainly on insects.

These wee birds positively glow in the dark gloomy understorey of the forest!

 

Framed by a friend.
