Pied Kingfisher  Ceryle rudis

As the water level of the Chobe River subsides during the dry season (June to October), the fish become relatively speaking easier to catch and the river and surrounds then teems with fishing birds like the Pied Kingfisher.

Unfortunately this little fellow was unsuccessful and was returning to perch to try again!

This image was captured on the Chobe River, near Kasane, northern Botswana, Southern Africa.
