Pied Kingfisher Ceryle rudis almost touching the Rufiji River in the Selous Game Reserve

" FLIGHT:

Pied Kingfisher hovers when searching for prey above water. This behaviour allows hunting over large water surfaces, being the only kingfisher able to move away from the shores. Usually, it performs a rather slow flight, often high above the water, before diving to catch its prey " - Pied Kingfisher

Absolutely great focus on that eye. Tough to do when they are in flight. Beautiful work.
