We often see the Ringed Kingfisher during various Boat trips, but it can be hard to get close to them - they're fairly skittish and typically fly off when we approach.  But this one perched in a tree, and didn't seem threatened by our presence (we weren't all that close, since I had to use the 600L with the 2x TC to get a tight enough shot).
