Adult Blue-Eared Kingfisher: so close

25th December 2009,  Taman Melawati, Selangor

Sometimes you’d be surprised at what you can see in your neighbourhood, well I was. An adult Blue-Eared Kingfisher (Alcedo Meninting)  local name:Pekaka Bintik-bintik .

I think she’s  used to being near  humans. The stream where she hunts is usually buzzing with  anglers and  people casting fish nets for catfish and talapias.  I was surprised at  how close I was able to  position myself  to take these shots.
