Fish Tail Plea

Poor little fish..'wagging' it's tail in desperation to escape...?

Just catching the eye of the fish that Guiney had captured after her long spell on her eggs.
You can still see the rain, from this wonderful experience on the river.

Today's the 'plumber day' hopefully! as it's a bit wet inside as well as out.

My thanks to you all for your comments, and to Alan and Eric for your User Awards

Have a great weekend
and 'be nice to each other' life is too short'

Another great Kingfisher image Lillian.....The little bit of blur on the tail of the blur makes it all come alive.

This has to be one of your best shots from the river.

Like me you only use 400mm max, though I know my lens is a fixed 400m, so I can add the converter, but it proves what can be achieved at that focal distance.

Many thanks again, for the U.ATongue

I recall a holiday in Bulgaria Lillian,
seeing the most disgusting plate of soup I have seen,
with fish tails sticking out the plate.Fortunately at least
the tails were not moving.And I moved out of the
restuarant as fast as I could !!
Good shot.
