It looks like I missed the Bird Poker Theme, but I only got this guy a couple of hours ago. Anyone who knows Belted Kingfishers know how cagey they can be and they are usually laughing at you as they fly away.

Anyway, I saw this guy land in this tree near where I was. I followed a path "pretending" not to notice him until I was close. Then I turned, pointed my camera and fired. This is the third of three shots before he flew away. 

This time, though, he wasn't laughing at me because he knew I got him.
