Always nice to get a Kingy under your belt, a record shot as i call them and a challenge to get more photos.

Thanks guys, I appreciate it! Just a luck encounter, he only gave me time for 2 shots and the other had that twig covering his beak, so this shot was it.

Thanks Jim and Budcam, pretty lucky to see him, Northeast Montana isn't noted to be a Kingfisher haven!
