CommentI saw a Sacred Kingfisher caught a moth and came back to the branch. While eating the moth fine powder from the moth flew into the air. The powder was shining in the sun and looked beautiful through the viewfinder of my camera. I'm happy with the outcome of the image as I can still see the fine powder coming from the moth.
