This is a small bird, about half the size of the Belted Kingfisher we have back in Minnesota. They have a beautiful iridescence, which I totally failed to capture. I'm still working on this photography thing. I'll get back to you if I ever get the Kingfisher sheen right. Kingfishers spend a lot of the day looking at the surface of the water. I could see he was getting twitchy, but I still missed the splash completely. He only paused a few seconds with the minnow before he flew away with it up the shoreline, presumably to feed his nestlings.
