Red Rumped Kingfisher - Todiramphas pyrrhopygius

To be politically correct the name has been changed to 'Red Backed' Kingfisher in all the new books and websites.

However, today I was lucky to pass by a usually very shy bird, that has done her best to hide.

Knowingly it is also winter and this bird did want to sit in the sunlight, so I did not have to wait long to take the photograph in better lighting.

What I like about this photograph most, is the amount of detail the camera was able to capture.
