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 grey-headed kingfisher is found in tropical and semi-tropical Africa and the Arabian Peninsula. A dry-country kingfisher of scrub and woodland it is often found near water and in solitary or in pairs, but unlike most kingfishers is not aquatic. It perches on a branch, unmoving for long periods while watching the ground for signs of insects or small lizards, bobbing head before diving on prey or predators.
