Happy Easter! 100’s of Christians gathered in front of the Bangladesh Parliament Building for the annual Easter Sunrise service!

I’ve seen this bird most mornings at 5:45 on our morning walk around the Parliament building.  It too dark to photograph plus I don’t have my camera with me.  Today I decided to return later in the day.  I waited 10 minutes and gave up and headed home.  I had only taken 30 steps down the sidewalk when I saw this kingfisher swooping down on the water before perching in this tree.  I retreated and got some photos with a 70-300mm canon lens on my  7D camera.
