Fun with Kingfishers and Buds (🤣 - Am I talking about beers?)

in Photography Lovers5 months ago

To FISH or not to FISH is the question!

Pensive Kingfishers always seem to be pondering this question. I find them sitting and gazing into water for hours. The perches they choose are beautiful sometimes. Thought I will share some beautiful perches which make a lovely picture....

The most unusual and lovely setting is when a Kingfisher sits on a throne of lotus flower...

I was lucky to have spotted the kingfisher sitting in lovely settings - with beautiful backgrounds or a flower perch.. It has not been easy to find or take these pictures.

Had to wade through mud sometimes and lie flat in it to take these pics...

The first time I saw a Kingfisher among lotus flowers it took my breath away.

King of lotus thrones...

It was a landscape shot and taken from a distance but I will never forget the beauty of that scene.

I then kept looking for such opportunities of taking pictures of Kingfishers in beautiful surroundings and got some more...

Kingfisher on a bud😂

Wondering why I am laughing so much at the title - Well , Kingfisher and Bud are beer brands LOL...

I also got another opportunity to click Kingfisher on a lotus bud...

The best, of course, was when the Kingfisher sat in a fully bloomed lotus flower. The image which I used for the blog collage is below in it's original form...


Sometimes the perch is not so beautiful as a lotus flower but it still makes a beautiful picture.

For example, this pied kingfisher sat on a stone with water mist all around... The black and white coloring of the bird makes a beautiful frame along with the white mist and dark rocks..

Stunning images

Thank you so much for your kind encouraging words.

Fantastic photography! @vm2904 📸👍

Never saw a turquoise kingfisher before. It's absolutely gorgeous - especially perched on the pink lotus bloom! Looks like a huge, mellowed out hummingbird.

Upvoted and curated 💯✍

Thanks for your kind words of encouragement. The turquoise kingfisher is really colourful - it has an orange belly and red and black beak. It has red feet too. It is called Common or River kingfisher in our part of the world. Not so common to find though 😀

Kingfishers are so majestic looking. Great shots.

Thank you so much for your kind words of encouragement. It is indeed a very big pat on the back for me, coming from one of the founder members of the community.
Kingfishers are majestic and also beautiful. They are my favourites.
I hope my posts are worthy of the high standards of this community. Please feel free to let me know if I can do anything to support the community at any time. I love the way you all encourage photographers and support them.

These are some absolutely BEAUTIFUL pictures of kingfishers! I've always wanted to capture some kingfishers myself, have not yet had the opportunity.

Thank you so much. I hope you get to capture kingfishers soon in your camera.

What an amazing experience to see this colourful bird on/in the flower with contrasting colours to offset a photographic ideal situation.

Black and White kingfisher looks like the Pied kingfisher we have a lot larger than the beauty that used a flower cup enjoying delights within.
