Belted Kingfishers

An Osprey took off with a catfish. A belted kingfisher followed the Osprey halfway before turning back. I missed making a good photo with the Osprey and its catch but I was able to locate the kingfishers later:

3 Beautiful Birds

The three birds below were photographed at a home garden in Sri Lanka on the same day. It was also the day I photographed the images I shared in little-things-seen-on-a-walk. Something to say for biodiversity.
