Bog Whisperer: Kingfisher has trouble deciding on pose

Thursday, December 8, 2022

This kingfisher, who was posing for her formal portrait from Martin DeGrazia at Ronald Bog, had a lot of trouble deciding on her pose. Right profile?

How about the left profile? It shows off my lovely brown ekg markings the best, and the white tip on my beak.

How about a 3/4 view - but wait - I don't have my feathers in place yet - Don't use that one! All right, I'm done. Catch me another day.


Update: Christine Southwick says that the lovely zigzag band across the chest identifies this kingfisher as a female. Pronouns have been changes accordingly.  - DKH
