From my Farnes trip last Monday. This one should be at the nest but must have decided to take a rest first!!

I am sure that if we tried hard Puffins could outnumber Kingfishers on this site!! What do you think!!

Thanks for your votes they are much appreciated!!

Have a great Sunday

Bill

Remarkable photography Bill. A superb capture from a well thought out low point of view. The pin sharp focusing and expert use of depth of field has allowed one to admire this little fella at his very best. Furthermore your chosen ISO has allowed you to achieve a Shutter Speed of 1/500 which is sufficient enough to freeze the action in the outstretched wings. Great photography and a great benchmark for fellow ornithological photographers.
