Kingfishers are without question spectacular - even when they sit in rather dull light!
This is an Azure Kingfisher (Ceyx azurea) which we got wonderful views of within a few minutes of starting an evening cruise on Yellow Waters in Kakadu National Park. The views we got of this bird were the best that I have had of this species, despite it being found all the way down the east coast of Australia.
The bird is between 17 and 19cm long and really is a spectacular bird to see. (Some of the pictures are a bit 'soft' due to me not having my act together at the time - rule number 1; always check the settings!!)
