Malachite Kingfisher Alcedo cristata

Zambesi River, Zambia

Monday 7th May 2007

  One of the best days of the trip. A river boat safari along the Zambesi with Vic Falls thundering in the distance. Up close and personal to Elephants, Monitor Lizards, Crocs, White Fronted Bee-eaters, Thick Knees and various species of Kingfisher including these cracking Malachites.

  Photos taken with a Canon EOS 30D and a Canon 75-300mm Lens.
