a Feisty female - holding her own !
Very unusual for kingfishers, to see them fight.

(male is on the left, and female slightly greener is on the right)

I hope you like it ??

Thanks for your lovely votes on my previous kingfisher and catch.

A great image.......if you zoom in on it, you can see that their beaks are actually interlocked! Are they definitely fighting, or could this be part of a courtship ritual?
