Belted Kingfisher

While I was in the blind Saturday morning, I suddenly heard a loud chatter noise. I quickly looked out all the blind openings, but didn't see anything. Then it stopped and I decided I missed whatever it was. But it started again and this time I saw it a short distance from the blind. A Belted Kingfisher was trying to swallow a small frog it had caught. I was able to get several pictures. This one captured the moment the best as it offers a good view of the bird and you can plainly see the frog in its beak. Getting this picture made sitting in the blind all morning worth it!
