Had a great day with the kingfishers again today.
Although the shot of the day is not of a kingfisher, or even two kingfishers.
It is of a heron! The reason the shot is special is because of what the heron has in its beak. I'll open it up to guesses and then load the shot on Friday.
Superb shot Cheryl.... Is it any kind of fish or even a frog?
A brilliant photograph. Charles.
Oh my Goodness! What a great shot
Excellent capture, really stunning. Hope the heron doesn't have a kingfisher in its mouth...........Sandy
Just stunning, you certainly have an eye for the Kingfishers and always great background and perchs
No not a baby kingfisher. I am convinced that no one will guess unless they talk with the only other person that knows.
Perch was carefully chosen by Mark Hancox in this instance as the birds had been squabbling earlier in the day so chose a longer perch in the hope that they may face off, but never imagined that they would do this. Well I didn't anyway.
my guess is nemo?
Superb moment Cheryl, they fight to the death on occasion. Heron has a vole/ eel. Ron.
excellent timing, great capture
No to all those answers. I am convinced that no one will guess.
Superb shot, fantastic colour and detail. The Heron has Elvis in its beak
super shot got the lot
Quote: Superb shot, fantastic colour and detail. The Heron has Elvis in its beak
Almost as unbelievable!
this ones quite special too girl.
Excellent and stunning shot!
Just superb am very jealous
awesome, I would love a photograph of just one kingfisher, Two bickering together like this is great. Really sharp well presented image
Great shot, Cheryl.
superb shot and timing - great work
I'm guessing a Tesco shopping trolley Cheryl or an eel.
Cracking capture today
Thanks Les for the GEA.
So no more guesses on the prey. How disappointing
Lovely shot, great pose, detail and bg. Excellent.
Hey that guess by Richard snuck in as I was typing my reply.
Nope not a fish or anything that lives in water, not even a shopping trolley!
Thanks all. Have a few more from the sequence which may be better but I was a bit busy when I got home so just processed the first shot of the two of them that I came across.
well, a rabbit?
just send my prize in the post..
Extremely good image. Wonderful detail. Can't wait to find out what the Heron had in its mouth.
Thanks Jane (Snappit) for the UA.
Nope not a rabbit.
superb capture of the action shot excellent, ronnie
This is an excellent capture Cheryl,super timing as usual for you.
I do hope the Heron hasn't got some form of clothing in it's beak,particularly an unmentionable piece of undergarment
Friday can't come soon enough....come on,spill the beans !!
Timing is perfect. Superb image.
Perfect and beautiful
a stunning shot..
Super shot Cheryl - I thought I recognised that background !!
There was a programme on tv about a cameraman and his passion for filming kingfishers last night, a piece of footage showed 2 kingfishers fighting just like this and fighting to the death which suprised me by drowning in the water, altho in the clip I saw a minx Crept up and killed the "victor".
One of the best Kingfisher shots I've seen ever! Worthy of an award but I've given one out already today.
Too good for words, well done
A truely wonderful photograph Cheryl.
I'll guess at an empty sardine tin for the heron....
award winning shot
Wow I didn't see this when I was there
