  1. Hello Takami.

    Congratulations! Seven years forward is long time, but looking back it is short. In seven years can happen many things – hopefully good ones starting from this day! It has been a great joy me to enjoy your wonderful photos. Thank you.

    Have a great day day!

    • Thank you Carol! I am glad you liked the reflection too. It required a lot of patience to get this shot, but was certainly worth the wait 🙂 I hope you and all your dear ones continue to stay safe.

    • Thank you Ash! As you can imagine I had to be very patient to capture this moment. Fortunately, I didn’t mind “being patient” at all, because you know how much I love our common Kingfishers. I could observe them all day and never get bored 🙂

      Ah yes, I can see why the sunlight reflecting the feathers give it a similar appearance to your Sacred Kingfisher. I love how there are so many distinct and unique birds in the Kingfisher family 🙂

    • Thank you Dries! I never thought I’d keep up with this for more than a year or two, and am extremely grateful for the continued interest and support. Comments like yours are so encouraging!! Thank you and continued best wishes to you and all your loved ones.

        • Ah yes, pen-palling and the days of good, old-fashioned “snail mail” 🙂 I enjoyed it very much when I was younger, and some of my pen friends have become real-life best friends well into our 30’s 😉 The pandemic has suspended much of our outbound international mail, so I hope to resume sending airmail letters once things settle down…

    • Thank you so much for your comment. It is a real privilege to witness Nature at work and I am happy to share the moment with others. Thank *you* for generously sharing your thoughtful and thought-provoking writing.

      Best wishes,
      Takami

    • Mr. Hien, you are too kind! 😀
      I am really happy you liked this shot. I waited a long time and was blessed with a cool moment. This kingfisher was a real superstar.

      It’s 7 years since starting this simple blog – I appreciate your support and encouragement through the years!
