Belted Kingfisher

I catch glimpses of this species but never have my camera in hand. Saw this one in my travels last weekend. Taken from the truck window. I parked and tried to get a little closer (which I did) but tried to make it just one more tree closer and it flew off with no photo.

Keep 'em in the ten ring

Tough bird to get a good picture of. They don't sit still for nothing.
