Belted kingfisher loves our pond

This magnificent belted kingfisher has become a regular visitor at our pond, serving as a natural, effective manager of our fish population. I’ve long wished to capture the moment of it diving into the water, but maybe next time. Drawn using a Pentel Graphgear 1000 (.3mm -2B, .5mm – 4B).
