Up at our local park again, hunting the kingfisher (that doesn't exist) we thought we'd check the frog spawn, no not for the kingfisher, and look what we saw. It did do a lot of flying around and I couldn't get too close. One because it moved everytime I did and two it's really big and you know how I am about small birds, imagine my heart beating with the size of this one! I know it's not really close but I am still pleased to get such a shot. Just need the kingfisher now!

Well . . . as luck would have it, you got a great image! Keep searching for that Kingfisher, I am so envious of yours there for their beauty. Ours pale by comparison, I am afraid.

I'd like to see him try Wink

Nicely caught Liz. The kingfisher is just to the left ad slightly out of shot.
