Common kingfisher (ALcedo atthis)

Oh that kingfisher...again....
When i saw kingfisher for the first time ever i imidiately really like it and wanted to photograph it so bad, but i didn't see another for three years.
I went out almost dailly to look for it and didn't find it nowhere...
One morning while i was driving home from night shift at work i decided to go back where i saw kingfisher first time three years ago, i sat down in my ghillie suit with camera and waited, but not for long...the bird landed on a branch two meters away from me, i moved camera and it flew away...i went back that afternoon and after one hour of waiting i had taken my first ever kingfisher photo...that was two years ago.

Since then i photographed it so many times.
I cant get bored of it, it's my favorite animal to photograph.
