Hi all, the pose is a little different from the norm but thought it may be worth viewing Wink
Many thanks for taking time out to view and comment on my Little Egret and a special thank you to Ron (Maiwand) for the UA, I really do appreciate and value the support,
Regards,
Geoff.

Indeed it's less common to see an almost head on shot of a kingfisher like this, Geoff, so it just makes your shot that wee bit different to the norm.
Lovely detail and plumage colours and even a twinkle in the eye.

A fantastic shot of this beautiful and brightly coloured little bird, he does look rather smug perched on that branch!
