Color bomb !

Oriental dwarf kingfisher is the smallest yet most colorful kingfisher species found in India. This kingfisher species breed in monsoons and make nests in the western ghats of India. The male and the female have to feed the young ones continuously. In this photograph is the female kingfishers who hunts and take cares for her young ones like every mother of any species. Having low light situations and continuous rainfall , I decided to make a lowkey by under exposing by three stops and having decent shutter speed for action.
