This is my favourite of the set so far, Lillian, it is absolutely wonderful. This is my favourite bird, too, always has been, and I thoroughly enjoy looking at all the other kingfisher shots on this site. So I have to say that yours compares very favourably with the rest, well done.

Not as easy as you first thought then Lillian Wink Sitting for long periods of time does play havoc with the back,as I have found on many an occasion !! Longest time in a small hide was 2 summers ago,I sat from 5.30am until 7.30pm one Sunday mid Summer & could hardly walk when I eventually got up to go home Tongue
Ps.....Well captured with food n all Wink
