The Pygmy is the smallest and most colourfull of the Kingfisher species. I captured this one at Ratlhogo hide two years ago and have not seen one in the Park since.

Beautiful! Can I use this picture for an art class? Or make a painting of it?

Picture perfect! In my opinion this is the photo of the day! I absolutely had no idea about the fact that Pygmy is the smallest bird. Anyway, I would really appreciate if you could appreciate more details about your camera.
