Turbo-charged Malachite Kingfisher

Late afternoon, from a dry branch on a tree on the banks of the Chobe River, Botswana, this Malachite Kingfisher launched itself and flew off at an incredible speed, disappearing into the distance.

Malachite Kingfisher – Alcedo cristata

Differs from similar but smaller, Pygmy Kingfisher by having the turquoise and black barred crown extending below the eye, and by lacking the violet wash on the sides of the head.
