Good Fences, (Good) Woodland Kingfisher

 The vibrantly colored Woodland Kingfisher encircled by the barbed wire on the chain link fence around the explosives depot
 Only the free-flying birds, insects and reptiles are permitted unautorized entry into the area behind this secure-looking wire fence
As always the Kingfisher sits while the intrepid photographer clicks away!

  6. Hi Jo!
    In Brazil we call him "Martim-pescador". This samll species is very common in the country, especially in forested areas and near streams. But I never tried to take pictures of them, they're very fast! Yours are very beautiful!!!
