COMMON KINGFISHER

Kingfishers are symbolic of freedom, courage & balance. They have a free spirit of running in their blood. 

In many cultures, they are associated with fertility and good fortune. The design of a kingfisher’s beak is aerodynamically efficient, allowing it to live from its perch, towards its prey, with maximum speed & minimum splash. 

In fact, the beak design is so clever that the front of many Japanese bullet trains are modelled to mimic it.
