Was able to get within about 20 feet of this beautiful Forest Kingfisher when it flew into a tree in front of us. It sat there looking for its next meal, completely unfazed by our presence. Even when a man with a dog walked beneath the bird, it didn't fly away. So fortunate to get this close to such a pretty bird.
