For my first sighting of the Pied Kingfisher (Ceryle rudis), I had the great chance to see a couple, both the male and the female, with the male fishing and offering the fish to the female. The moment was way better than the picture! :) We can see them on a wire hanging over the Periyar River.

Love Nature.
