Watchful Malalchite Kingfisher
These tiny little birds, the malachite kingfishers, are fearless and voracious fisher-birds. They hang out on a reed by the water, still as the reed, and the suddenly dive straight down into the water for a small fish. They usually succeed. I took this photo in the Okavango Delta of Botswana. I added an art filter in post-processing to achieve this effect.
