Small and brightly coloured typical kingfisher, azure-blue above and bright rufous bellow.
Seen in totally urban and densely populated Cox's Bazar, fishing in small ponds.
I'm pretty much enjoying seeing these fellas and gals when walking to and from the office. I must admit the Cox's is not really the most pleasant place to walk, because of the pollution, unsolved garbage and sewage problems... and traffic, too; but the encounters of this sort compensate a lot. The interesting thing for me was that I tried real hard to see this kingfisher in Europe, and I managed a couple of times - but never managed a decent pics; and here... I see them almost every day...
