Photo 26 – Malachite Kingfisher perch

Location: Okavango Delta, Botswana

Date: June 28, 2017

Description: Malachite kingfisher fishing from a perch (Corythornis cristatus)

As with most kingfishers, these birds are very difficult to photograph. Only 4-5 inches in length they never sit still and are very skittish around people. In order to get this photograph I had to lie flat in the bottom of a boat and drift gently into the reed beds.
