River Stour Kingfisher with Fish

Many thanks to all for your votes, comments and clicks on the previous Nutty image Smile As always welcomed and appreciated.

I have never been sure about this image, as i'm not a fan of dark BG'ds ! However thought I would give it an airing as it's been on the mac for far too long !!

Your thoughts would be welcomed and appreciated.

All the best
Dean
