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.
