Bad Weather

29 February 2012,
The weather was cloudy and rainy at Ragunan Zoo, but i was still waiting
for the Blue-eared Kingfisher (Alcedo meninting). Finally, the female
Blue-eared Kingfisher came and perching at her favorite branch. But
near her perch there's a zookeeper who was cleaning the leaves, so
she flew to another tree.

Then, she landed on open perch, looking down for prey. After about one
minute, she's diving to catch a shrimp..after that she's perching on
rock to eat her prey. But i missed the moment when she's eating her
prey, because the speed is too slow (around 1/13 to 1/20). I only
got the photo when she's finished to eat.
