Ringed king fisher (again ;-) )

Sorry it’s a king fisher again ;) . Since I’m here I have had some good opportunities to take pictures of this beautiful little bird. But a couple of days ago this fellow presented himself in the morning sun so nicely I couldn’t resist. And I must say, I´m quite happy with the outcome.

    Btw, this is a female. They can be distinguished from males by the white line that separates the blue chest from the reddish belly. Males are all the way red up to their chest
