Belted Kingfisher

The Celery Bog was silent when I heard the battle cry of my nemesis from nearby. She’s right behind me! Before I could swing around she was firing on me, “Tat-tat-tat-tat-tat!” With my trusty Canon now in position I returned fire, “Clickety-clickety-clickety-clickety!” “Tat-tat-tat-tat-tat!” “Clickety-clickety-clickety-clickety!” The battle raged on for what felt like hours but in reality was only a few seconds and in the end I narrowly escaped with a shot.
