    Such Images are rare.The expession in the faces and eyes of both the Birds is captured so well.Again,the angular view shows us the full wingspread.And yet, the colours are natural.To my mind,exceptional composition. SaktiWild

    Lovely image. I liked the composition. The eye contact and pose of both the birds is nice. The colours and the light look good. Nicely captured. Thanks for sharing.

    Nice image. Good interaction. In such kinds of interactions, often one pushes the other away from the perch. However, a partner will often perch close and offer a bee/insect which is readily accepted.


    I have seen Kingfishers offering small pebbles before mating. Not sure about the reason though.

    Cheers,

    It appeared like they were partners, as they eventually settled down on the same perch.
