Nature photography, political rants, and Martyman laughs from the ten-time award-winning author of "Cool Creatures, Hot Planet," "Endangered Edens," and the "Time Is Irreverent" series.

K is for Kingfisher



Marty’s photo of the day #1464: It’s “Animals A thru Z Month.” Each day in June, I will post an animal I’ve photographed—somewhere in the world—in alphabetical order.

K is for Kingfisher. I photographed this ringed kingfisher in Costa Rica. So, yes, it will be another animal featured in my new book, Endangered Edens (coming in October). Ringed kingfishers are the largest kingfishers in the Western Hemisphere (18 inches from beak to tail), and they dive headfirst into the water after small fish.
