COMMON KINGFISHER (DANUBE DELTA)- this small bird was very far from the boat....

The common kingfisher (Alcedo atthis) also known as the Eurasian kingfisher, and river kingfisher, is a small kingfisher with seven subspecies recognized within its wide distribution across Eurasia and North Africa. It is resident in much of its range, but migrates from areas where rivers freeze in winter.

This sparrow-sized bird has the typical short-tailed, large-headed kingfisher profile; it has blue upperparts, orange underparts and a long bill. It feeds mainly on fish, caught by diving, and has special visual adaptations to enable it to see prey under water. The glossy white eggs are laid in a nest at the end of a burrow in a riverbank.

Hello Marius,
I love the contrasting colors and beautiful markings on this particular species of kingfisher. They are so photogenic and always pleasing to the eyes. Excellent exposure and you captured superb detail. I really like the blurred BG.
