The indigo-banded kingfisher (Ceyx cyanopectus) is a species of bird in the family Alcedinidae. It is endemic to the Philippines, where it is a generally uncommon but locally common resident of the northern and central islands. There are two subspecies, the nominate race, which occurs on Luzon, Polillo, Mindoro, Sibuyan and Ticao, and C. c. nigriostris, which is found in Panay, Negros and Cebu. It forms a superspecies with the southern silvery kingfisher of the southern Philippines.

That is a lovely photo! I wish I had the ability to quit work, and just travel full time photographing wildlife.

I went back to photograph the Indigo-banded Kingfisher again, but this time with a hide.

Click this link then the photo inside the link to see the Photosphere.

A Photosphere is a 360-degree panorama that lets you take immersive pictures with your phone, then share them online. You can pan and zoom, much like you can with the Google Street View feature we've all come to know on Google Maps.

Only, these are our images.

Sadly, it was a no show.
