(acp) WOODLAND KINGFISHER – A LIMITED EDITION PRINT
The beautiful azure blue Woodland Kingfisher is widely distributed across Africa, seldom far from fresh water they inhabit forests, woodlands and even suburban gardens. Woodland Kingfishers feed on a wide range of prey items, mainly insects, but they will also take fish, snakes, lizards and even other birds. They generally live in pairs and are strongly territorial. Nesting in holes in trees they will aggressively chase away rival kingfishers, predatory birds and even human intruders!

On a recent visit to the Kruger National Park, I found myself becoming more and more captivated by sightings of birds. Despite the fact that it was during the dry winter months when the migratory birds are far away in the northern hemisphere, it felt as though I was seeing a greater diversity than on many previous occasions; rollers and sunbirds, orioles and kingfishers, barbets, owls and coucals – suddenly it felt as though there were birds everywhere. Looking back at the photographs from the trip, I have become absorbed by the structure of birds, the detail of the feathers, the shape of the bills, the configuration of the tails. As a result of these observations, I’ve now embarked on a series of bird studies, given the incredible variety of species in southern Africa, this could be a long journey!
