This is my favourite bird. I have taken hundreds of pictures of this little bird and this is probably the best one.
The Malachite Kingfisher poses a serious challenge to a photographer: it is small, quite shy, and is often perched in vegetation difficult to access, by a river.
This picture was taken in Liwonde National Park, Malawi, on a boat safari, whilst leading a group of students from the school I was teaching at.
