It was a little bit past six thirty in the morning in Temiang Village. Willy from the Humanity Forum and I were discussing a plan to help education of the sea nomads and the village over here on the small jetty. Suddenly he pointed to an object behind my back: “look, a kingfisher!”. I was first hesitating since it was a bit too far. Nonetheless I changed my lens, and walked a little bit closer. Took a few frames, then came back to Willy to continue our conversation. Not for long, as  I noticed it flew closer and landed on top of a roof nearby, as if wanted to listen to our chat. So I grabbed back my camera, and shot a few more frames.
