Belted Kingfisher Takes Flight

I was watching this female belted kingfisher flying around and diving in a local Vermont beaver pond. Caught this action as she was taking off  for another dash and dive around the pond.

 

The first picture is my original photo, and the second is “painted” in Photoshop. The third picture is kingfisher as “Phoenix Rising”

This is a sequence of photos taken at the North Springfield Dam, in Springfield Vermont. There were 3 Great Egrets there- these two took off together, seemingly in a chase.
