Shake it Off, Belted Kingfisher, IL, USA by Sandra Rust

“I love photographing Belted Kingfishers,” they’re at the top of my list of favorite birds to photograph. I’ve had some of my greatest and most memorable moments with them. This morning took me off guard, in having one of those moments in nature. I was out taking photos, and saw "who I title the Queenfisher," a female Belted Kingfisher. She landed up on a wire over a pond, I grabbed my camera to click a shot, and just when I clicked, she started to shake vigorously, and the water flew off all around her. This is the shot I caught of the water drops flying off her.
