Another from Monday.

I know small in the frame is not always appreciated, but it does show the relative size of the kingfisher. Something that frame filling images do not always managed to convey.

Of course I have plenty of frame-fillers as well Grin

Thanks for the UAs on yesterdays upload, most appreciated.
