Photos Sir? : Blue-Eared Kingfisher

23rd October 2010, Kemensah, Selangor

There were no birds to shoot last Saturday. Luckily this juvenile Blue-Eared Kingfisher decided to drop in to have her pictures  taken. This was the closest that I had managed to get to this King. It wasn’t the perfect perch but then  beggars can’t be choosers!

  1. awesome photo even if it is on a drain pipe. Our kingfishers never land anywhere close to where one can get a photo.

  3. Hi Paul
    You're most welcomed. The Kingfisher's pond is about 15 min fr my house. There are 2, an adult an a juvenile. I'm usually in Kemensah every Sat & Sun mornings if there are no family errants to run. Diversity of birds is quite good in Kemensah, density-wise not really great. It's the nearest place in KL to get to see these birds.
