Black-Capped Kingfisher

Canon EOS 650D
Tamron SP 150-600mm F/5-6.3
Bangpu, Samutprakan, Thailand

The Kingfishers are always the kings of all the fishers, they are majestic as they look like, adorned and painted with all the colours, they be big and small, their calls are distinct and interesting.

Watching this one has also been a pleasure; very shy, yet also willing display its beauty. Straightforward jpeg absent enhancements.

Ali Bernie Buga-y has been a teacher in arts and music to different international schools in Thailand for nine years until he decided to enjoy the full time lifestyle of being a visual artist. Together with his family, he travels to different national parks in Thailand to experience true encounters in nature and the wildlife. His love for the birds and animals is the driving force that motivates him to photograph and paint them as seen in the wild. The joys of birding can only be shared through visual representations of these lovely feathered creatures carefully studied and observed in their natural habitat. As a graduate of Theology, he perfectly understands that somehow man should find ways to emerge himself to an edenic experience here on earth; and through these physical experiences man may again find spirituality beholding nature. Complicated as it may seem, Bernie finds it refreshing to the mind and soul as nature reveals itself when he observes and study them carefully through photography.
