Watching kingfishers

I've been having fun photographing a pair of belted kingfishers that consider our lake their home turf. I was out rowing this afternoon when one of the birds landed on the mid-lake platform not too far away from where I was.

I can't get over the size of kingfisher beaks.  So long, strong and sharp.

The mid-lake platform is a favorite perch for not only belted kingfisher but for many other birds too. Today, however, after surveying the water from the platform and then diving for fish, the kingfisher decided to fly up into a pine tree along the shoreline.  Can you find him there?
