CORACIIFORMES. ALCEDINIDAE. Megaceryle alcyon. Belted Kingfisher. La Chua Trail, Paynes Prairie Preserve State Park, Gainesville, Florida. 2013.
A good Kingfisher photo has been on my wish list for a while. I got close yesterday, but it was really bright and sunny, and this was over exposed. I was in a hurry because there was a group of people just about to walk by and scare the bird away, so I snapped anyway. The Kingfishers are here for the winter, and very active, so I may have luck this year!
