Fill your home with the beauty of this exquisitely detailed & stunningly beautiful hand-made bird miniature from the western state of Rajasthan, India.
This image was painted by famous Jaipur wild life miniature artist, Mr. Narendra Katara.

The Half-collared kingfisher is widespread but uncommon, with populations scattered across sub-Saharan Africa. In southern Africa, it is most common in Zimbabwe and South Africa's rivers, streams and estuaries. Its diet consists mostly of fish, which it hunts by sitting on a perch for long periods then, once it spots a fish, diving in to catch it. It nests in burrows dug into vertical riverbanks, which are excavated and where the eggs are incubated by both sexes.
