Master fisher enjoys prey in southern China's Shenzhen City
Updated 16:10, 11-Sep-2021

A common kingfisher was photographed gobbling down a fish on Wednesday in southern China's Shenzhen City.

Kingfishers are small-sized colorful birds that are distinguished by their predominantly blue plumage and orange underparts.

They often find a vantage point that overlooks a river or a lake, in this case, a stone sculpture, and swoop down with pinpoint accuracy to catch prey.

Birdlover Fang Qiaoran based in Shenzhen took these photos. She has been traveling around the country to watch birds for years.
