Nothing wrong with this John, it's a nice image in which to start your portfolio with.

All the best.

Well, the largest malachite(?) kingfisher that I've got is just around the size of the catchlight in your kingfisher's eye so can't criticise :^) . It's not perfect, but very nice crop/composition, good background and really good posture by the bird - all the basics are there so just need a nice sunny morning and you'd have a cracker :^) .

Given that five out of the last six EC's are birds, it has to be in with a chance. Although looks like owls are the flavour of the month. Wink
