Just to show I still keep my hand in with the old bird photography I thought I'd post a shot of a Kingfisher today.
If I appear to be quiet on the commenting/voting front, please excuse me only I'm a little busy with the other things in life at the moment, any way hope you enjoy looking at this for the time being......

Regards to all.......Ade

A magnificent shot of this beautiful little bird, such wonderful detail and bright colours in the plumage. I'm surprised you've held this one back for so long!

So so beautiful! I didn't think they stayed still for long enough to be photographed. The only time I have ever seen kingfishers they are flashing by at a speed! Amazing detail!

Been sorting through some of my older images stored on my removable drives Ed, it's amazing what you can find when you start having a root around under the dust Grin Shall be uploading a few more over the coming few days as I've run out of things to process now.....Hurrah...You can tell the dark winter nights are here Sad
