Wing Stretching

Posted by Laurette (Lonehill - Fourways, South Africa) on 28 January 2015 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

Woodland Kingfisher perching on a low branch and waiting patiently for its prey (mainly insects but also frogs ,lizards and even small birds ) to pass its way. They will sit for long periods on the same branch scanning the ground below and then many times do some wing stretching in between.

All comments and views are much appreciated
