Photo of the week without a shadow of doubt!

Wow! I often see Kingfishers on this site, and although it's one of my dream shots to capture, they are all fairly similar in appearance. This one stands out way above the rest because it's actually doing something.

This really is wildlife photography at international standard!!!

You deserve every single award and plenty more to come I hope, maybe silver or gold in colour!

11/10.

Andrew.
