Malachite kingfisher in balancing act
Malachite kingfisher (Corythornis cristatus) perched on stem of a Papyrus sedge. The bird is leaning forward slightly as if trying to find balance under the sway of the reed. The imaginary line drawn by the bill meeting with the curvature of the reed beyond the frame made this capture an interesting composition.
