A kingy from the archives today. This shot was taken at first light and the cob webs from the perch that had been left out over night were clearly visible.

Wonderful detail and light bringing out a fine Kingy and cobwebs Lee. Might have cropped just behind the lichen on the right to make the Kingy not so central, but then you would lose the right hand cobweb, difficult decision.
Cracking shot

OK, you can see any number of high quality photographs of Kingfishers on here, but few are as well composed, lit and framed as this one. A real beauty.

A wonderful shot.

The mod is the standard boost contrast, colour, sharpening and adding a slight vignette.
