Female Belted Kingfisher
I took this photo a month or so ago but have kept it waiting in my files, thinking I might get a better photo. BUT it has been too hot and muggy lately to visit the marsh where this bird hangs out. I was lucky to get this shot because another belted kingfisher thinks this area is his/her territory and just after I made this shot, it chased this female away!
Thanks, Andy! You reminded me that I had this photo in my archives!
