While I was (suppose to be) watching the boy play cricket Thursday, this fella chose to have a late snack, no more that 10ft away from and wasn't too perturbed about me taking photo. (larger images on Flickr

Thanks Cee Cee. No "gardener" this one, very sharp eyes. I saw hi land pull out the worms about 6 times within seconds of landing.

Nice shots. I have loads of shots of them in the trees but have never seen or let alone captured them 'harvesting' from the ground. Well done.

Just read up about these and it says they are a terrestrial kingfisher.
You can definitely see the resemblance.
Good series of photos.
