Pied Kingfisher

I took this sequence of blurry photographs at Luangwa Wafwa lagoon at sunset, using a telephoto lens. The exposure was far too long but I was lucky to capture something which looks like the real thing.
Hover, dive, submerge, pick up fish, fly away.

You can tell the difference between the male and female pied kingfishers by the markings on the chest. The female has a waistcoat, the male has a brassiere.
