this bird is Pied Kingfisher - Ceryle rudis, i take this photo is Rishon Le Zion area in Israel, 1D mark II + 70-200mm 2.8L + 2x Extender
Interesting color...my first to see this marking. I studied this bird...found it unique...I guess I liked the strong bill and the big crested head. I hand painted the male and female North-American Kingfisher on each side of my motorcycle tank. I do have a drawing of it in my pic; Trials riding. I also liked the name of the bird.
All of your work is so amazing and beautiful. Keep it up!
