What a jewel-like bird!

 

It seems so petite.

 

Very nice image.

 

Thank you.

@Peter Connan and @Tom Kellie

 

Thank you 

 

Yes the striped Kingfisher is relatively smaller compared to the Brown-hooded Kingfisher but larger than the Malachite Kingfisher.

@Jonathan Morris

Where did you take the shot of the Striped Kingfisher?
