    The mud in the beak and head tells a story. When kingfishers dive, their eye is protected by the nictitating membrane. It also acts as a polarizing lens so that the kingfisher can find out the correct location of the fish within water. So rarely kingfishers miss their prey.

    Such a colourful bird. The composition looks nice. This image reminds me of Sundarban trip just before the lockdown. We have to wait till Gods are willing to let us there again.

    Cheers,
    Sabyasachi

    A splendid image. Kingfishers often have striking colour contrast. Thanks for sharing.
