I've always loved the Kingfisher. Seeing one when I'm out is always a huge bonus and without doubt the highlight of any birding day. Unfortunately they can be quite elusive and more often than not I've only been alerted to them as them shoot past me, flashing that unmistakable blue back at me.
However, that all said, I had something happen the other day that will probably never happen to me again. I had 6 Kingfishers in front of me on perches and posts not more than 15 feet away, as I sat in a hide. It was like my Birthday and Christmas coming all at once, and I had my camera with me and ready too. I still can't quite believe what I did witness. I will instead allow to see what I saw with just some of the photos I was able to take.
