Kingfishers are known to own a bright plumage it is common, but it is quite a bit different for birds living in cold regions. This kingfisher lives peacefully near water bodies and catches prey by diving. After Alan’s grandfather instilled in him a fascination with wildlife and nature, Alan discovered a keen interest in wildlife photography.

“I remember that my grandfather took me to visit the kingfisher nest, and I remember being awestruck by how magnificent the birds are,” she said. “I remember being utterly swept away by how magnificent the birds are.” Therefore, when I became interested in photography, I returned to this location to take pictures of the kingfishers.

Alan expressed. To get a perfect photograph without error, the photographer and the bird needed to be in the right place.

Alan said of the level of dedication that went into taking this photo, “I never really stopped to think about how long it was taking along the way as I enjoyed doing it, but now I look back on it I’m really proud of the picture and the work I put in.” Even though Alan’s grandfather was already dead, if he should still alive, he would be would have loved it very much and brimming with pride.
