We have searched out a place very secretly to photograph Kingfisher. The Pied King is also found in that place. During their fish hunt they hover in the air and snatch their target within a flash, and interesting they always come in pair. I was lucky to found it on the parch. It looks idle, but was very sharp in its watch. Its eye is the proof of it. When the eye takes this color it means it is ready to take the jump.

Nirupam Roy is a school teacher by profession. His story of coming to the world of photography is quite fascinating. In one summer he planned a family trip to Orrisa, India. There he realized the necessity of a camera to capture the scenic beauty of the place surrounded by several sea-coasts. At the same time he wanted to photograph his family, especially his son Arkapravo, and bought his first camera Canon SX 40 HS. After returning home, he has fallen in love with photography passionately. Photography completely changes his whole attitude towards nature and human being. It gives him a sort of peace to his weary mind, as if a blessings from Almighty.
