Queen with her catch!


During a trip to Lake Naivasha I photographed this female Pied Kingfisher (Ceryle rudis) which had just caught a tiny Fish for itself.

There were so many Pied Kingfisher's in the area and the only reason I got to see this one was because there was a loud splash when it went into the water to catch the Fish.
