Default Cute birds

I think this kingfisher is a young one.


This is the Indian Roller, throwing a suspicious look at me:

Nice shots Raghu. One does not get near that close to the Kingfishers in my area.

Thanks a lot Steve and Paul. Steve - they are shy here too. The bird was at least 15-20 feet away. Paul - I have a FZ 28; and I think I shot it at full zoom.

Well, done, Raghu-

You are a very patient and stealthy man to get with 20 feet of those birds. They are very wary.

Have a great day.
