The King greets you all

The King greets you all: I guess this one definitely deserves the King title and the one who would have christened him definitely needs to be acclaimed.

This beast has style, power, voice, majestic look and much more for the bird, beast and men to be both enamoured and be afraid of him.

At times the Leo may look vulnerable but don’t be deceived by it.

What comes to your mind when you hear “Kingfisher”? Its a shame if the first thing that comes to your mind is theĀ doomed airline or perhaps the flamboyant owner of the doomed airline.

God has created beautiful species of bird which go by the popular name of Kingfisher. Went through a bit of reading to know on why they are called the Kingfisher as there are numerous birds who fish for a living and they all fish well. I guess the royal title goes to this smaller fisher bird species perhaps forĀ their elegance, speed and the increased amount of fishing they do. Hard-worker they are! Its a sight to see them swooping in and out of the water.

There are roughly 90 odd species with the royal Kingly title and they come in various sizes, colours and forms viz., Pygmy, Common, Collared, Stork Billed etc. I think I would need a lifetime to sight all of them. Phew!

They do prefer a change in cuisine occasionally and do try their fishing skills to grab a frog or a crab when they get tired of eatingĀ the stinky fishĀ šŸ™‚

You should surely be able to sight one near any lake, creek or river and nowadays even near a man-made waterhole.
