The South Philippines Dwarf Kingfisher is a small bird species that until recently had remained largely hidden from sight.
It had not been seen for around 130 years before an avid bird-watching eye surgeon managed to capture some great shots of this elusive subject.
Its conservation status is currently listed as Vulnerable.
I also captured a process video of this piece. Check it out below.
Note that I’m still working on getting used to and improving my setup so excuse my iso-mop hair and nose making brief cameos as I work.
Let me know what you think of this piece and what other endgangered species you think I should tackle in future sessions.
